Manifesto workshop

Want to make your own poster and be seen in the city space? Then, come to the poster workshop run by artist/illustrator Robin Ellis and artist/designer Päivi Raivio on Saturday 2 April at 11-15, where you will learn to do screen printing and get your message seen as part of a collective work. Come and enjoy working together with others! The posters are exhibited in the Banqueting Restaurant after the workshop. The Manifesto workshop has been held before in Berlin and Tallinn and it is partly inspired by political history.

Busking School

Do you like performing? Do you play one or more instruments?

At the Busking School on Saturday 2 April at 12-14 you will learn in a relaxed setting with top musicians Stephen Paul Taylor and Juho Kanervo. For the workshop you will need your own instrument – and ask your band or co-musicians to join you.

Apart from the workshop, the Busking School also includes lectures, at 15-16, for which registration is not required. You will get outline information on the history of busking and on legislation in different countries. You will also hear about the cavalcade of inventive, gifted performers that Pavel Klusák has seen in various parts of the world while helping the artist set up the Tram Buskers’ Tour. At 14:00-15:00 there will be a showing of Dalibor Zíta and the BuskerVille community’s documentary about busking in Prague. The documentary is in Czech, with English subtitles. Duration c. 52 minutes.
