Please come and join us for the launch event for the STATE VIOLENCE RESEARCH NETWORK — Thursday 11th October at Partisan, Cheetam Hill Road, Manchester.

The first half of the event is a discussion forum, featuring local activists and academics, provoking a wider discussion on state violence, the links between activism and academia, and what the academy can do better in supporting activist struggle and activity. This discussion forum is open to the entire audience, following short statements by each of the speakers. EXACT LINE-UP TO BE CONFIRMED.

This will then be followed by a screening of the new Brazilian documentary 'Nossos Mortos Tem Voz' (Our Dead Have Voice) which explores the effects and consequences of police violence and brutality in the favelas of Baixada Fluminense.

Vegan wine and snacks will be provided free of charge.

DOORS OPEN 18:00 FOR THE EVENT TO START AT 18:30.

Address: Partisan, 19 Cheetham Hill Road, Manchester, M4 4FY

ACCESSIBILITY STATEMENT
Partisan is located across 2 floors of a 3-story building. The ground floor is occupied by the offices of other businesses. We have the basement and the first floor.

Physical access is currently limited for both floors; details and videos of doorways and staircases can be provided. There are currently no wheelchair ramps or lifts.

The basement has 11 steps from street level, without a handrail. The first floor has 22 steps from street level, with a handrail. There are 40 steps between the two floors.

Both of our floors have a large open central area with high ceilings. Each floor is equipped with suitable furniture, but the spaces are adaptable and can be easily split or sectioned off using the available sofas, tables and chairs, or making use of the pillars in the building as sectional structures. Seating is available on each floor at all events. For performances, a seated viewing area will be available.

None of the toilets are currently fully accessible. All of them involve steps. All toilets are gender-neutral and are located on both levels of the venue. On the first floor, these are single contained stalls. In the basement, there are stalls and urinals.

Assistance dogs are allowed at all times. Other well behaved dogs are usually welcome, with the exception of in performance rooms of loud music events. If you have a dog allergy/phobia let us know – we’ll do what we can.

For ticketed events, paying disabled people are eligible to a free additional ticket for a PA to accompany them.

Some of our access depends on the event. Alcohol is sometimes present across both floors – particularly for gigs and music nights, but not for things like meetings and workshops. Contact [email protected] if you would like details of a specific event.

Partisan aims to be a safer space. As such, harmful and discriminatory behaviour is not tolerated. As a cooperative, Partisan is democratically owned by its members, and is shaped by everybody through what we say and what we do. If you are challenged or feel threatened, speak to someone wearing a Partisan badge; they are there to help.
