Passing Down Exhibition

An exhibition of The Passing Down project, supported by Manchester Literature Festival and Manchester Science Festival, is now being exhibited at NOWGEN on Grafton Street. The project was conceived by poet Helen Clare to explore how stories and ideas are passed down in families and how people make sense of inheritance in their own lives. During Autumn 2008 Helen worked with a number of community and writing groups, schools and events, including Cultureword, The Monday Night Group, Full Circle Arts, MoSI, Cartwheel Arts, Greater Manchester Science Network, The BA Festival of Science and Salford Libraries. People’s ideas were collated and organised by Helen and the textile artwork was designed and made by artist Lynn Setterington.
