Parties and Picket Lines: Building Socialist Culture
Manchester Momentum

Add to calendar

How do we merge the political and cultural worlds? Over the last 12 months, along with many different activists and local organisations, Manchester Momentum has worked to create a long-lasting, positive intervention on the cultural scene in the city. From regular parties and film afternoons, to political discussions and visits to picket lines, the group has sought to make politics fun and relevant in the face of a changing political landscape. Come along to this session to get the tools you need to do the same in your community!
