What do the arts mean to you? What are the arts for? Do you and your community need the arts or even want them? Chloe Barlow and Josh Wilkinson, aka North Manchester theatre duo Malandra Jacks, will be posing such provocative questions for Festival in My House… And Yours – and they’re enlisting fellow artists and residents of Moston and Harpurhey to help them find some answers.
Arty Farty is both a celebration and a satire on all things arty – and an exploration of the challenges and barriers faced by working-class artists looking to build a career in the arts. Arty Farty is of Festival in My House… And Yours 2021, a series of micro-international festivals created and streamed from home by Greater Manchester artists. Supported and presented by Manchester International Festival.
