Thank you for helping us develop designs to turn our bus into a piece of art!
The Art Bus has been created to travel all over Manchester providing free art and music performances and workshops for local communities inspired by the music and contemporary art of West Africa in the We Face Forward exhibition (at Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester Art Gallery, Gallery of Costume and Manchester Museum). From mid May it will start it’s travels across the city taking artists and musicians and it will appear at a huge range of venues in local communities from libraries to Café’s to Schools. They will promote the exhibition and provide exciting music and creative workshop taster sessions encouraging local communities to visit the exhibition and take part in the events.
Creative hands will select and develop the designs onto the Art Bus creating some art on wheels. From Mid May and throughout the duration of We Face Forward exhibition (until 16 September) the Art Bus will be travelling across Manchester. So you might see your artwork driving though Manchester!
