EXHIBITION LAUNCH AND INVITATION:
Our exhibition opened on Monday, 12th November, 2018 at Manchester Piccadilly Train Station on the main concourse, just by the main message boards and ran until the 18th November. Over the six days some 720,000 people passed through the station! The show coincided with the high profile With1Voice International Arts and Homelessness summit/festival in the city. Following Piccadilly the show moved to Media City where it ran for 5 days in The Open Centre. 2019 will bring other venues which we look forward to. Full details will be posted here once dates are confirmed.
