Artists in Greater Manchester – download the report now

Posted on 7 May 2015

The Artists in Greater Manchester survey was led by early Career Researcher Dr Alison Slater (Lecturer, Manchester School of Art, MMU) with Kwong Lee (Director, Castlefield Gallery) and mentored by Dr Amanda Ravetz (Senior Research Fellow, MIRIAD).

The survey set out to investigate the context and challenges of creating a census of the number of artists practicing across the ten regional boroughs of Greater Manchester (Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford and Wigan) in Spring 2013. Data was collected about as many artists as possible that lived and/or worked across the ten regional boroughs, including information about how artists define themselves as ‘artists’, their practices and their careers.

The report is now available as a PDF (downloadable below) or on Issuu.
