Our first I Heart Thursday of 2019 is hosted by artist, and familiar face to many, Mark Storor. Mark's long-term project Baa Baa Baric: Have You Any Pull? started in St Helens back in 2015 and since then he has worked with many members of the town's community exploring how to create a different story of St Helens.
Thursday 28th March 6:00 pm — 8:30 pm
Phoenix Plant Based Eatery
Mark will host a screening of Sydney Pollack’s They Shoot Horses Don’t They? (18) This 1969 Academy Award winning picture tells the story of a group of characters desperate struggle to win a dance marathon, and the opportunistic emcee who urges them on to victory.
“In addition to everything else it does, “Horses” holds our attention because it tells us something we didn’t know about human nature and American society. It tells us a lot more than that, of course, but because it works on this fundamental level as well it is one of the best American movies of the 1970s” – Roger Ebert
Phoenix Plant Based Eatery is wheelchair accessible. Film transcription available upon request.

Doors and the bar will be open from 6pm and the film screening will start at 6.30pm.
I Heart Thursdays is our new event series. A regular St Helens social get together to bring us all a little closer, it’s a chance for artist to meet audience, creatives to engage with communities. With no script and no agenda nothing is off limits, and anything could happen! Expect talks, screenings, dinners and just about everything in between! Why are our artists compelled to produce the work they do? What are the processes they harness in its creation? And what do we, the audience, really think of it all anyway?
