I am organizing a tour of my big art piece ERi which is to publicize opposing hate crimes.
Several groups support this tour including the Greater Manchester Police, Mosscare Housing, Victim Support, TransForum Manchester, GIRES etc.
However I want to do things that are FUN as well. So I was wondering if an event can be set up in a Greater Manchester borough. The Greater Manchester Police was the first police force to recognize that people from alternative subcultures can receive hate crimes.
So I was thinking about what if we could organize having bands, stalls, parties and so on in a borough some weekend. This would be like the Feel Good festival in Rochdale or the Whitby Goth Weekend. Perhaps a festival could include giving support against hate crimes...
To give support for ALL groups who can be victimized by hate crimes as well as support for those who HAVE received hate crimes.
