50 Windows Of Creativity in Manchester

01 November 2020

I was so delighted to create an art filled window for the 50 Windows of Creativity art trail in my home city. A project which has transformed 50 of the the city’s windows into an innovative art gallery which takes you on a creative journey around the city.It’s a safe, socially distanced activity! Go and check it out! Find out more about 50 windows and download the map here 

My window is inspired by the work of Manchester Festival of Nature. It is a celebration of the wonderful and diverse wildlife in and around the city, involving all of the top conservation organisations in the region. It allows people to immerse themselves in the wild while learning about the plants and creatures they can experience here in Greater Manchester, including all of the birds illustrated in the window. The Manchester Festival of Nature will take place at Heaton Park 2021 in June – all being well!

 

My bird illustrations are surrounded by illustrated paper leaves and other wildlife and some emotive statements from the festivals youth committee about how they feel about nature. Many of these birds feature in ‘The Perfect 10’ – ten birds chosen to represent the 10 boroughs of Greater Manchester. Find out more about the Perfect 10 here.
