Bee in the City is a community art trail brought to Manchester by Wild in Art to make art accessible to all and bring all parts of the community together. Typical of the Nomad Clan's distinctive style, the art piece is a tribute to the rich history and heritage of Manchester and takes you on a journey unravelling tales of it's Roman beginnings, the 'Cottonopolis' textile industry, the 1800's original Scuttler gangs, the Suffragette movement, to the regeneration, creativity and diversity of the present day and the true northern spirit. The 'Federation Bee' sponsored by Co-op Digital, The Co-op Foundation and The Federation proudly celebrates our rich, local history and heritage whilst capturing a socio-economic commentary of the city and the colour palette becomes more vibrant as the design takes in Manchester’s music scene and other cultural highlights. This celebration of community empowerment and innovation is aligned to the ethical and co-operative values of The Federation and The Co-op themselves.
The Bee in the City community art trail is live around Manchester until 23rd September 2018. Join the community and get involved!
