Cutting Room activities launched

The next phase of the innovative event Cutting Room Experiment has now been announced, with the winning ideas and schedule going up on the website last week. I was really excited to find out which activities were going to go ahead, and in the end there were 103 ideas generated and 1,166 people counted in for activities.

This is such a unique concept, and it’s been fantastic to see the message being passed around the web on Twitter, Facebook and blogs. I’ve been tweeting about this event under @cuttingroomexp and it’s really cool to see people talking about an event you’re involved in.

So anyway, onto the events. I’ve posted the full list below with times and all this information is also on www.cuttingroomexperiment.com. On the day of Cutting Room Experiment on Saturday, June 20 there will also be an unveiling of art work by artist Dan Dubowitz at 3pm at Cutting Room Square.

There is also a photocall tomorrow morning at 10am at Cutting Room Square, which isn’t far off Great Ancoats Street, so if anyone wants to pop along and be photographed bouncing around on an orange Space Hopper, do come along!

All the activities at the Cutting Room Event are going on all day, so people can come and go as they please throughout the day. There’s quite a few ideas that are great for kids, so hopefully there will be lots of families there as well as all you young urban dwellers.

Here is the schedule for the Cutting Room Experiment on Saturday, June 20.
