Capitalism Works For Me – Steve Lambert


American-born Steve Lambert joins us on video-chat to answer some questions regarding his latest and perhaps most revolutionary work, “Capitalism Works For Me”. His interactive installation has penetrated the minds of people all over the world and offers much debate over the political themes that are expressed.

After the talk guests will be invited to take place in an intervention during which we will talk, debate, and look to answer some questions centred around whether capitalism works for us. So if you are politically enthused and have something to say, make sure you are there on Sunday at 5pm to take part in this remarkable event.

Paths Through Utopias


Come down to Hope Mill in Ancoats for an intimate screening of the independent film, “Paths through Utopias” – written and created by London-based political activists, The Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination.

The film will provide an alternative interpretation of capitalist themes by featuring a seven month journey across Europe.  It sheds light on a range of communities and their differing ideologies – despite all being part of one, big, capitalist continent.

The film was directly inspired by William Morris’s book “News from Nowhere”, a utopian novel about the future of global ecumenical promise. It is remarkably shot and captures the diversity of Europe, while inspiring debate regarding capitalist economies.
