At the moment we are building elements of the 2019 festival square with Manchester International Festival. We are aiming to involve over 1000 members of the public in the process. This is our second year working with MIF and it’s always a pleasure.
We believe this works because getting people around a table to work on something together is a highly effective way to build a community. This gives people a feeling of responsibility, investment and belonging.
This is one of our first workshops for The Pilcrow held in Joe’s old studio in Phoenix House. Since the Phoenix House days we have opened studio spaces across Manchester to provide space for making and meeting.
