METROLINK STATIONS ACROSS GREATER MANCHESTER

Graphic Encounters discussed the experiences of women in Manchester through a series of compelling illustrated narratives presented in poster-sites across Greater Manchester’s Metrolink network. The project, developed with Dr. Lucy Burke of Manchester Metropolitan University and the LGBT Foundation, explored the lives of four women facing particular challenges to their health and well being in the city. Artworks by four artists, two from the UK and two from Finland, were presented in poster-sites across Greater Manchester’s Metrolink network.
