Street Trainers from the group Other
Gallery Assistant at CUBE Manchester. I will be assisting the artist Lottie Child and documenting Street Training sessions.
I have no experience of Street Training so far, though I have read and seen quite a lot about it.
I and several people from the Arts Research Group of the Department of Art Education at UNICENTRO, in Guarapuava, Parana, Brazil, participated in Street Training activities with Lottie Child, who also offered a workshop on 27-28 March, 2009. Provided the fascinating experience, I, various students and colleagues wish to establish a Street Training Group for continued action in the region of Guarapuava.
I am interested in performance and women studies and also direct and develop site specific performing projects. I am a professor at the Department of Art Education at UNICENTRO (www.unicentro.br), with a research focus on creative processes that allow for interactivy, so that the "audience" may become a participant during the performance in progress.
Have encouraged some athletic street pursuits through tit-tat Disco Olympics
enjoy combining disco with sport
So far...I have embraced round things, discovered fresh unseen parts of Manchester I have never encountered before, and I am beginning to learn how to really push my physical capabilities.
I am really interested in the idea and relationsip between the concept of nostalgia and psychogeography. How ones space can spark recollection and ways in which this happens by navigating the city, how those memories can change that space forever. Anyone else have any thoughts?
'low impact' parkour e.g. building bridges across railings, crossing invisible barriers, climbing things! creating noise, creating shapes, looking at details, sitting, balancing, dancing, piling, falling... yeah everything!
street training has shown me i do all the joyful things naturally, and is inspiring me to push myself physically and mentally to do more- break the barriers of the city.
activate the city and it will work for you- think of the futureheads 'city is here for you to use'
'these are the things that make it better
fine art graduate, i volunteer a lot. there are so many things i have enjoyed volunteering for i still don't know what i want to do forever! hopefully something to incorporate my work (which is also my play!)
i love the city and all its details. i particularly love the graffiti, the street stickers, the small protests, people interacting with each other, the 'help points' ^_~ colours and sounds, round things, walking and talking with people i love and care about, pointing out things we notice.
I'm interested in linking Street Training with loitering - 'loitering with intent to make Manchester wonderful, because the city is our playground'
Part of Manchester Street Training group with CUBE gallery.
I'm only on session one. Good fun, but still a lot to learn I think!

Very little until Lottie informed me of her project. Basically, my hands follow a beat of their own whether it is making waves, playing imaginary pianos or shooting fireballs; my hands can't stop moving when I am walking about.
I live in Panama but will soon be splitting time between NYC, Paris and Buenos Aires.

I am studying Fine Art at the moment and my work is pretty much about the human being, the human body and human emotions. I enjoy exploring human reactions and personal conflicts people are faced with in everyday life. I work mainly with performance ,drawing and painting as well. I also enjoy exploring photography and photographic processes. i'm interested in street training for the way in which you interact with the public, in a sense that you are proactive to achieve your goals. Your idea of working with youth groups who are at "risk of offending" is also not only interesting but important and overlooked as well. Not many people would waste time chatting to young men who are considered criminals. Your work seems to be very much about Art itself,that is, you enjoy working directly with galleries and Art education and that's fascinating!
