    Territories Reimagined: International Perspectives
     
    When they first advertised it they said that they were looking for 'loiterers and urban explorers, artists of all kinds, walkers, talkers, map makers, historians, situationists, space invaders, dreamers, mischief makers and more - anyone who is interested in looking at Manchester in a different way is welcome to join us.' Well, it looks like they're coming.

    I'm currently thrilling to the lineup for June's TRIP conference, ie Territories Reimagined: International Perspectives, 'A psychogeography festival in Manchester, 19th - 21st June 2008'. And also to some of the planned events - especially perhaps Frank Kickball Jesus presents 3-sided psychogeographical football: US v UK psychogeographers in a match played under the Mancunian Way. (Frank’s allegedly done this kind of thing a lot in the US). My pulse is also racing for a different reason, having seen the cost of the thing - but it's shaping up like it'll be well worth it.
