I’m excited to announce that I have been commissioned by Manchester Histories to create a piece of audio art that draws inspiration from the 200 year anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre and its accompanying themes of protest, democracy, freedom of speech.
I am one of ten artists chosen as part of the ArtivistGM project, which pairs creative practitioners with Greater Manchester archives. I will be working with the Working Class Movement Library, responding to their collection of minutes from the Manchester and Salford Women’s Trades Union Council 1895-1919.
ArtivistGM enables archivists and artists to collaborate in bringing a heritage collection to life, whilst creating new ways for the public to engage with the heritage of their local area.
The audio piece will be released in September.
