It’s West Africa all over Manchester this summer, with contemporary art and music taking place at venues and in public spaces across the city. The visual art element is an ambitious exhibition of contemporary art spread across three venues, Manchester Art Gallery, Whitworth Art Gallery and the Gallery of Costume at Platt Hall. It features work by around 30 artists and includes painting, drawing, photography, textiles, sculpture, video and sound work.
These 45 minute tours of We Face Forward: Art and Music From West Africa Today are led by artists whose practice is connected to West Africa. They introduce the exhibition to groups through personal responses and reflections inspired by the artworks on display.
These tours cost £50 per group for a maximum of 22 students
