The artists are Omid Asadi, Jennie Franklin, Parham Ghalamdar, Jackie Haynes, Sarah Lee, Horace Lindezey, Millie Loveday, Deborah Makinde, Laura Nathan, Dominic Pillai, Alice Merida Richards, and Leslie Thompson.

Their explorations of cultural heritage range from TV specials and 1980s Moss Side to famous musicians and personal family heritage
