The LCAC Shop

shop1

The LCAC shop opened temporarily in the summer of 2015.

It was a high street hub of radical thinking, hosting meetings, discussions and a series of coordinated arts events – mostly on Levenshulme Village Green.

We worked with different sectors of the local community to address the relationship between land use, constructions of community, accessibility to the arts and the possibility of an urban commons.

10am An Imaginary Bicycle Ride Quandrants, Fallowfield Loop, Crayfield Road exit

Facilitators: Lorenza Casini, Paul Bower (& Lyra Casini-Bower)

We’ll be taking an imaginary bicycle ride (in other words a walking tour) along a section of Stockport Road or ‘the A6’, through Levenshulme to imagine, speculate and discuss what an A6 kind and open to cyclists of all ages and abilities could be like.

So many of us want to have a viable transport alternative that is fun, cheap, social and good for the environment. Only we already do, it’s called the bicycle! But feeling safe and protected whilst cycling on our roads, still feels like a distant reality for most in the UK and Levenshulme is no different here. But this shouldn’t stop us thinking, imagining and dreaming about making it a closer reality.

What would the A6 feel and look like if road space was redistributed more sensibly to other, more vulnerable road users such as cyclists? Where and how could we accommodate segregated cycling lanes? Where would we need cycling parking to make it convenient to use the High Street without a car? How could we safely join and cross the A6 on our bikes by ourselves or with our kids? How would the character and feel of our High Street change if we were to give more space to cycling?

Join us on Saturday 18th July at 10am if you would like to contribute and participate in this conversation. We will be meeting and starting at the exit on Crayfield Road of the Fallowfield Loop (near the Quadrants orchard) and take a walk, for approximately one hour, along Stockport Road ending at Levenshulme Market. We will bring simple tools and props that will enable us to quickly draw, test and reimagine a different A6, spark ideas and hopefully healthy debates. We aim to gather all the ideas and suggestions in a small manifesto for our Levenshulme stretch of Stockport Road to then involve wider stakeholders, such as our local councillors; fellow residents and businesses, in helping set a new agenda for future improvements.

Come alone; with your partners; family and friends; on foot or bring your bike too! Along with your ideas, aspirations, bugbears and all.

12pm – 1pm Failed Journeys A documentation of the poor accessibility of Levenshulme train station. People with wheels – buggies, pushchairs, bikes, wheelchairs etc – know that it is hard to use Levenshulme station, with its stairs and lack of lift. This may mean that they don’t use the station at all. The same is true of people with reduced mobility. These failed journeys are invisible because they never happen. As part of the LCAC Projects, we will make these invisible non-events into a visible event. To show our desire to use the station we will form a queue to fail to get up the stairs. We will document this and offer our documentation for use in campaigns for a station with better access.
2pm – 4pm Discussion: What is Home? Join Swedish artists Sara Davies, Ingrid Karlsson-Kemp and Helena Lee for an informal discussion to share your ideas of home, belonging, nostalgia and collective memories. #theanglonordicarchive
