In 2019 we invited creatives from all over Greater Manchester to take to the mic and say their piece, responding to the themes of Protest, Democracy and Freedom of Speech.

Speakers were given a platform from which to voice their creative responses to the events of Peterloo, and what it has come to represent for them now. Democratic society cannot function without an active commitment to freedom of expression which enables citizens to access and exchange information, share ideas, form judgements, communicate opinions, promote causes and thereby participate in their governance.

Enormous thanks to our partners and funders
