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. It then moved to the art gallery space at Altrincham College of Arts. On the 18th February 2019 we moved the show to Platform at Manchester Airport's rail terminal, on the kind invitation of MAG Property. It showed here until the 18th of March then relocated, at the kind invitation of Lloyds Bank to their business hub and events space on Market Street, central Manchester. Commercial property company Bruntwood then very kindly offered us space at Manchester Technology Centre, Oxford Rd, Manchester, where the show concluded it's run. The exhibition panels have now been given to those people who appeared in the project.
