Journal of Development Studies raise money for local arts centre
04 Aug 2014
For the third year running, the Journal of Development Studies, based at IDPM, held its annual book sale at the SEED postgraduate conference in support of Z-Arts in Hulme
Once again, all the money raised was donated to the Z-Arts centre in Hulme which serves Manchester as a multi-artform venue for children and families, using creativity to help people reach their potential. The money will be put towards costs of community arts activities, similar to the Knowledge Emporium. The Knowledge Emporium is a Slung Low creation where you exchange knowledge for sweets. All that knowledge gets written in a Big Red Book Of Everything We Know and then performed as a reading back to the community to celebrate the knowledge of the people.
The Journal of Development Studies Review Editor, Dr Tanja Müller (IDPM/SEED) and her editorial assistants, Jessica Hawkins and Helen Underhill, both IDPM PGR students, would like to thank all the staff and students who were involved with organising and supporting the book sale.
