The show presents a powerful mix of autobiographical material; alongside the abundant lived experience of community members, to ignite local pride, and much-needed conversations.
On Friday 18th March 2022, we held an event at AJs Academy, Moston to conclude the initial research and development stage of our new show, Census. We had live music, poetry and art on display alongside food and huge community spirit. Thank you so much to everyone that came down.

Arty Farty is the latest instalment of Manchester International Festival's micro-international festivals created and streamed from home by Greater Manchester artists.
