HAVING had her Active Resistance to Propaganda manifesto widely panned when she presented it at this year’s Hay Literary Festival, Vivienne Westwood will be hoping it receives a warmer response in London as she prepares to take it public again. The grande dame of British political fashion will present her ideas on art and insight amid the 17th century Dutch paintings and 18th century French works of the Wallace Collection at Hertford House next month. The manifesto – a dialogue between 25 characters including Alice in Wonderland, Pinocchio, Aristotle and Whistler – will be read by Georgia May Jagger (as Alice), with other parts open to members of the public. “The most important thing about this manifesto is that it is a practice,” Westwood explains. “If you follow it your life will change. In the pursuit of culture you will start to think. If you change your life, you change the world.” Interested in giving it a go? The Active Resistance to Propaganda manifesto reading will take place at The Wallace Collection, Hertford House, Manchester Square, London, W1 at 2pm on December 1. Tickets cost £12; call 020 7563 9551 to book, or to request to play a role.
