Currently showing in THE WINDOW is “Postcard City” created by members of THE BACK gALLErY art club at the last workshop in January.
Participants used postcards made as part of the #answersonapostcardplease project by many different community members and groups across Old Trafford to build their own postcard city.
The city includes highrise towerbocks , houses, back alleys (with bins and hopskotch) , a park, a church, mosque and temple , shops including toys, meat, fruit and veg and sun tanning lounge and even their own creative space! There are traffic lights, zebra crossings, bus stops and busses, lamposts, a postbox , trees and a few happy people dotted about. All created, designed and installed entirely by the children and young people.
You can also view a video of animations made at our recent animation workshop with Dudha Design .
And of course this Window display is promoting our upcoming exhibition in shop windows along Ayres Road “answers on a postcard please” which is the culmination of the project funded by Arts Council England .
It’s coming soon…..8th-23rd February
