For artists, professionals and anyone with a ‘Let’s give it a go’ mind set.


"An evening of performance, talks and conversation. With the regions studio spaces, DIY collectives and arts communities all together in our gallery space, it’s your chance to be inspired and make connections with those working creatively across Greater Manchester.

With Test Card (Manchester), Anna FC Smith (Cross Street Arts Wigan), Short Supply (Salford) with Oliver Tennant,  Rachel Goodyear (Islington Mill Salford) and more.

Each Thursday as part of the  Manchester Open Exhibition  we will be hosting a series of takeovers and interventions by a variety of artists, groups and performers. Including performance work submitted for the Manchester Open, and invited artistic responses.

The gallery will be open until 21:00 on Thursday evenings so you can enjoy the exhibition outside of standard gallery opening times."
