The Fire Within Festival @Wigan Galleries

Incredible atmosphere at the launch of The Fire Within, Wigan Borough’s new cultural manifesto, an inspirational five year plan, written by the people for the people. The Festival seeks to engage, challenge and galvanise young people to take centre stage and show us new ways of seeing the world, creating new cultural experiences. Conceived and curated by Wigan based international artists, Al and AL, the entire first floor of The Galleries has been transformed for the Festival, inviting everyone to a series of performances, dance, poetry, as well as art, music and film exhibitions. Delighted to have my photo of Mary Griffiths and her team exhibited as part of this stunning event and exhibition!
