This Garden of Ours

7pm – 9pm
2 hours
10 Oct 2019

Join us at the launch of This Garden of Ours, a collaborative art project researching global horticulture, which explores stories and links between the migration of plants and humans across the planet. Using a range of techniques, artists have added their own stories to the histories of the plants. The installation is made from handmade pottery, self-portrait photography and other interpretations.

With a celebratory opening event, talks and an opportunity to meet the artists, there are lots of ways you can find out more. This garden is Ours. Welcome.

There will be a selection of vegetarian food and non-alcoholic beverages to enjoy. The celebration will conclude with a global, musical voyage from the spellbinding Manchester International Roots Orchestra.

Project led by Jessica El Mal working with Alina, Raheeda, Shamin, Zeeshan, Raqia, Andrea, Helen, Myriam, Samieh, Alsa, Leila, Hoori, Zari, Azar, Rehana, Marc, Jila, Angie, Annabelle, Cyril, Afsun, Zahida and Fariborz.
