GREATER MANCUNIANS: A landmark photographic project
Supported by Manchester City Council
Manchester College Students are in the process of photographing those people born, bred, or who have made their home within the current Greater Manchester boundary and who have in some way culturally shaped the city and its surrounding boroughs.
We’re inviting, musicians, sportsmen/women, entertainers, entrepreneurs, politicians, actors, comedians, artists and community champions to be photographed in the city at a poignant or significant location of their choosing. Tutor Harry Potts is the main coordinator of the project, with all photography undertaken by students. The principle aim is to give talented young students employability/work experience skills so vital when breaking into the creative industries.
Greater Mancunians will be published and culminate in a major exhibition at Manchester Central Library in Spring 2024.
