Protest and Resistance map at Toxteth Library
In August 2012 we contributed to the Nerve Centre libraries tour a sound installation and world map on which visitors were invited to record protests, strikes, movements and acts of resistance that have occurred since 2008 in response to the capitalist crisis, from library closure protests to the Chilean student uprising.
MAMA / Migrant Artists Mutual Aid
Since December 2011, Penny has been working as part of Migrant Artists Mutual Aid (MaMa), a network of people who come together to produce community cultural events that aim to promote cohesion and intercultural understanding while raising money for migrants in crisis.
MaMa recently contributed to Cartographies of Justice , a creative investigation into citizenship, migration and belonging with an eye on social and ecological justice. For the event, which took place at Liverpool Hope University, MaMa organised a Migrant Story Slam, bringing together the lively world of slam poetry and the high stakes reality of storytelling that is part of the lives of migrants, from passport control through asylum hearings to the check outs at supermarkets.
