Inspired by Celia Fiennes (1662–1741) who journeyed through England on horseback and came to Manchester in 1688, Jo Roberts will be a contemporary reporter coming to the city. She will take as her subject Manchester’s two football clubs, revealing the quirky through drawing and writing, reflecting and observing.
Working at Manchester City and Manchester United Football Clubs, Jo Roberts will interview a selection of people about their goals in life from players to grounds men, cleaners to ticket sellers, finding the human stories behind the game. She will publish her findings in the Manchester Evening News in the run up to her exhibition opening in October.
