Unemployed disco/arts event (regular)

Postby Liztopia » Sat Mar 19, 2011 7:01 pm

So - inspired by Cardiff's unemployment discos, and that it is that redundancy time of year, I am interested in setting up unemployed discos/performance and arty type events, either in the Forest or potentially somewhere else. Thought I would send this shout out to gauge interest/ideas and anyone up for involvement. A political campaigny edge would be nice too.

Thoughts?

I think it sounds fucking great. Love to get involved and make it happen.
More thoughts proper after the weekend.

Sounds cool. I might well be up for pitching in at the performance end of things, though taking on much organisaton of a new project might be beyond me! Keep me in touch.

As the soon to be redundant, albeit voluntarily jumping ship, it sounds like a great idea.

Litztopia,
how do you wish to move this along. Maybe set up a meeting, set a date etc.

Hey! Sorry took a while to reply... meeting - how about Thursday the 7th of April, 3pm in the Forest? Now I've lost my job my schedule is fairly free if that doesn't suit.
