Event Description

The Shrieking Violet turns three at the start of August, so come and celebrate the fanzine's birthday at Manchester's pop-up canalside Olympic village.

Atelier[zero] was designed by students from Manchester School of Architecture and Paris's École Spéciale d’Architecture in Paris in collaboration with the Office for Subversive Architecture. Redefining the concept of the Olympic village, it features both artworks and attractions like a ball pool, rowing boats and a hammock.

Get your free copy of issue 19, the biggest and best yet, eat some purple cake/Parma Violets, dive into the ball pool and test your rowing skills by taking a boat out onto the canal basin.


In issue 19:

* Manchester-based filmmaker Richard Howe continues his series of mental health in the movies by looking at Jesus' Son, directed by Alison Maclean.

* Natalie Bradbury visits the National Football Museum to find out what it has to offer a non-sports fan.

* Anouska Smith offers a guide to some of the best places to drink tea in Manchester.

* Simon Sheppard profiles Pierre Baume, a 19th century radical and eccentric (imaginatively illustrated by Dominic Oliver).

* Kenn Taylor considers some of the implications of the fragmentation of our railway system.

* Photographer James Robinson provides the Shrieking Violet with its first animal feature, 'Perros y gatos'.

* Architect Joe Austin pays tribute to three post-war murals in London and Coventry, by Dorothy Annan, Gordon Cullen and William Mitchell, and highlights the often-uncertain future of public artworks like these. 

* Liz Buckley reviews Stanya Kahn's exhibition 'It's Cool, I'm Good', currently on in the Cornerhouse galleries.

* Read the first chapter of Matthew Duncan Taylor's novel 'Godfrey'.

* Find out more about the Video Jam project from its founder, artist Sarah Hill.

* A recipe for delicious apricot and poppy seed bread from Shrieking Violet favourite Bakerie in the Northern Quarter.

The cover is by Hannah Bitowski, who is based at the Royal Standard in Liverpool.
