Let Me Stay (Manchester.)

Supported by Dan Silver of Manchester based Social Action Research Foundation Let Me Stay was open from March 25-29 2016.

In an amazing space, at Manchester Creative Studio, 16 Blossom St, Manchester, M4 5AW I exhibited my work related to precarity and insecurity, especially in housing. Of the several hundred people who attended, we had some really interesting discussions, with amongst others politicians and also Contour Housing Association.

With thanks to Dan Silver, Manchester Creative Studio and Creative Scotland's Open Fund for their generous support.

I was interviewed about the project by The Sociology Review about the project here
