A collaborative residency between visual artist Amina Ansari and poet and scriptwriter Anjum Malik celebrating the ‘hidden heroes’ amongst the new arrivals in Manchester; mothers, daughters, wives, women who have travelled and have stories to tell. Amina paints portraits of selected groups of women while Anjum creates work flowing from conversations in a variety of languages, focusing on socially engaged, performance and participatory art forms, engaging in the full diversity of Manchester through creative writing. The project will be produced during the first week of the festival, and exhibited in the second week as a multimedia installation.
