Together We Move is an on-going programme of responsive events and exhibitions, which celebrates Everything I Have Is Yours by Eileen Simpson and Ben White (Open Music Archive).
Since January 2019, local producer Liz Wewiora, and artist team, Sally Gilford and Ben McDonnell, have been working with over 60s residents from across Greater Manchester to engage with the music, visual culture and social history of the decade 1952–1962. Following a series of creative workshops including screen printing, collage, music and how to develop a ‘visual score’, the participants and artists have developed a collective artwork. This new installation fills the stairway and represents visual scores drawn from tracks including Moon Riverby Danny Williams (HMV) 1961,Oh Carolby Neil Sedaka (RCA) 1959, and Because You’re Mine by Nat ‘King’ Cole (Capitol) 1952.
Venue: Salford Museum and Art Gallery, Peel Park, The Cresent, Salford M3 5WU

We are looking for people from 18 years of age to people in their 80s, who are able to commit to two separate half day sessions (around 2-3 hours each) to volunteer with us.
