What does it mean to be British? Join us for this event at Manchester Central Library for an exploration of identity, Britishness and citizenship.
The event is based on visual artist Laura Malacart's book 'The Little Book of Answers' which is created using the answers from the UK citizenship test. Shown in alphabetical order, the answers seem a collection of data, a musical score or concrete poetry.
Come along, have a look at the answers and see what YOU think they say about citizenship and identity. You might even like to try guessing the missing questions...
Laura Malacart has invited collaborators to join her to explore the work and there will be discussions and performances throughout the event.
Everybody welcome. Feel free to drop in for a few minutes or stay longer.
12 noon Roundtable discussion on the history, experience and representation of citizenship with Laura Malacart, sociologists Bridget Byrne and Anne-Marie Fortier, and Kevin Bolton, librarian.
2pm Live performances from collaborators.
4pm Conclusions and sharing
