Free Talk

Join Dig the City Coffee Morning Talk and hear about Emmeline Pankhurst’s links to Alexandra Park and how she inspired the Park’s artistic regeneration.

Alexandra Arts is an artist-led collective based in Manchester’s Alexandra Park, founded in 2010 by Artist Lotte Karlsen. During Autumn 2014, Alexandra Arts curated the widely successful Pankhurst in the Park programme and are currently planning for its return in 2015.

Pankhurst in the Park is an Arts Council England funded programme of free events, artist commissions and an international artist residency. It celebrates Alexandra Park’s rich historical connection to the iconic leader of the Suffragette Movement, Emmeline Pankhurst, who was born and bred only yards from the Park in the neighbouring Moss Side estate.
