A wave of action speaks Louder Than Words
so claimed Tina Turner in her debut single with Ike and in the words of the record that would become the duos first hit.
Certainly ‘the truest thing that I ever heard’…
Our first Louder Than Words Festival – a first for our team, a first of its type and a first for all involved – was, from feedback and the follow-up offers for involvement in 2104, a resounding success! Working in collaboration with John Robb, the partnerships we brought together generated a wave of action that enabled us to create a distinctive weekend of events and engagement. Importantly, our inaugural Festival weekend is now confirmed as the starting point for exciting longer-term Louder ventures.
Louder Than Words brings together authors, artists, academics, poets, performers, lyricists, journalists, DJs, bloggers, aficionados, publishers, fans, and the intrigued all under the one roof of the impressive and imposing Palace Hotel in central Manchester for a weekend of insightful, interesting and indulgent fun, all in-keeping with the creativity and excitement associated with the music industry.
Our first Festival programme also brought together some of the greatest established names in the business alongside new, inspired and inspiring writers and performers. Audiences had the opportunity to listen, hear and contribute to the words that capture their lives, experiences, reflections and suggestions in an intimate and interactive manner. Whether in conversation, debate, discussion or performance, Louder Than Words provides audiences with entertaining opportunities for engagement in something special.
In 2013 we were privileged to have the trust, support and backing of businesses, universities, publishers, industry specific organisations and The Arts Council England as well as active support from all our contributors and audience members. Many thanks to all who came and joined in the fun and to all who worked so hard to ensure that others could do so! We’re already looking forward to 2014 and hope you can join us and be involved!
