Manifest Arts Festival returns this year with over 30 events, more than 250 North West based artists and 10 open studios, taking place across Manchester, Salford and Bolton. Now in its second year, the five-day artist-led biennial will inhabit some of the region’s most unique and unusual spaces, as well as larger institutions, including Castlefield Gallery, Chetham’s Library, Manchester Craft and Design Centre, and HOME. Make sure to catch the premiere of 2016 GM Arts Prize Winner Andrew Brooks’ new exhibition; a photographic study of The Portico Library. And stop for a cup of ManifestTea – Mike Chavez-Dawson’s ‘taste portrait’ of the festival.
