Artist commissions in Manchester

Continuing its exciting work for Transport for Greater Manchester, ArtReach is thrilled to have successfully secured support from the Heritage Lottery Fund to enhance commissioning.

ArtReach is working with TfGM to commission artists for four iconic interchanges in Greater Manchester – Stockport, Ashton (Tameside), Salford and Wigan. The HLF funding achieved will enable an inspiring programme of community heritage engagement to take place, involving local people and Local Studies Departments in Stockport and Ashton.

Artists have now been selected for both Stockport and Ashton (Tameside) commissions with formal announcements due shortly. This important public art commissioning and development work builds on a range of other public art initiatives led or supported by ArtReach, including delivery of a number of public art projects in central Bedfordshire.
