Manchester After Hours / Northern Quarter After Dark
Northern Quarter After Dark is part of a new festival of creativity Manchester After Hours – a one night only nocturnal event across Manchester’s arts venues and districts on Thursday 15 May.
First and second year students from Manchester School of Art will be exhibiting their work across venues in Manchester's Northern Quarter as part of the late night festival.
Their work has been developed during Unit X, an innovative project from Manchester School of Art which brings together art, design and media students from different year groups to work on live projects with outside organisations, businesses and venues across the city.
Manchester School of Art students are exhibiting at the following venues:
30 Oldham Street, Manchester, M1 1JN
Manchester's historic Dry Bar hosts an art installation created by the Manchester School of Art as part of our Unit X initiative. New creative talent from the Creative Multi-Media, Interior Design and Film and Media Studies courses have worked together with Dry Bar staff to create artworks to help launch the countdown to the Dry Bar's 25th anniversary.
Federation House, (Castlefield Gallery), Federation Building, Federation Street, Manchester. M4 2AH
Art, Design, Media exhibitions
This exhibition is on the top floor of the new arts space at Federation House and is part of an ongoing relationship with Castlefield Gallery to bridge the gap between students and professional practitioners. The quality, range and diversity of the work on display is ample evidence of the city's continuing vibrant, creative pulse.
