Manchester based artist and event producer Michael Barnes-Wynters (aka Barney) has curated leading edge cultural initiatives for the past 20 years ranging from nightclub promotion to doodlebug live painting events and the noiselab part of noise festival.

Doodlebug was born in 1991 as a creative platform for its culturally diverse Northwest based artists, musicians, performers and DJs. Doodlebug's debut event in '94 presented the unknown DJ Shadow and DJ Krush...headz session(mo wax records). During this time Doodlebug provided a platform for unknown artists the likes of as Mr. Scruff, Andy Votel and Alison David to develop and explore their creative practices.

IDD ( 99-06), held simultaneously in Manchester, London and Tokyo, IDD nurtured talent the likes of Pete Fowler and gave rise to the scrawl collective whilst introducing the UK’s first street art expo at Urbis, Manchester in 2003, which moved onto the Tate Modern in 2008.
