'Pankhurst in the Park' 2016- takes inspiration from Alexandra Park's rich heritage connected to Iconic Suffragette, Emmeline Pankhurst; this years programme includes a International Artist Residency (AiR), artist commissions and age friendly engagement opportunities. Accompanied by an integrated Arts Awards educational program with St Mary's Primary School in Moss Side.
This year Alexandra Arts will do things a bit different with the Artist in Residency – it will be done by invitation only. We secured our funding later then expected, hence running out time to do a open call for this years AiR.
We will continue to strengthen our ties with New York, connection made during 'Pankhurst in the Park' , Arts Basel Miami 2014 as well as the Maverick Expo in late 2015. In the pipe line is a series of transatlantic exchanges and an exhibition in New York. So watch this space......
The full park programme, including the Artist in Residency and New York venue will be announced on Friday the 29th of February 2016.
