Away Day to Manchester
Saturday 28 September
Following the success of our recent Away Days to Bristol and Cardiff we took another joint trip with Spike Associates, this time to Manchester. We visited during Manchester Contemporary, the city’s international art fair, where we had a series of short talks from participating gallerists. We also saw exhibitions in publicly-funded artist-run spaces including Castlefield, Bureau and Islington Mill and met those responsible for the spaces and their programmes.
Previous Away Days have offered members an invaluable insight into the workings of another city’s art scene as well as the chance to make new connections with other practitioners that may lead to future opportunities and collaborations.
