16 days of street art action 2015 - Pillars of the community

1 Oct 2015 - 16:02 by michelle.foster

On each day of the international campaign, running from 25 November 2015 to 10 December 2015, ’16 days of action to end violence against women’ a piece of street art depicting a revolutionary woman will appear on street pillars on Oldham Street in Manchester city centre. The pillars will remain decorated until 30 January 2016.

This action aims to promote the work of female artists from across the northwest and celebrate some of the lesser-known female icons of past and present.

16 Days of Street Art Action are delivering a series of women centered workshops in the run up to the campaign, offering the unique opportunity to work with local female artists, practising different art forms and looking at some of the issues that have inspired this action.
