Launching the 2017 festival, Instigate Arts takes over Manchester Art Gallery for a special one-night-only event called Making The Strange Familiar inspired by the exhibition Strange and Familiar, a portrait of modern Britain as seen through the lens of international photographers and curated by the documentary photographer Martin Parr.
This is a one-of-a-kind evening, dedicated to making the invisible visible. The gallery spaces will be handed over to experimental and unsung artists, musicians and performers who will create bold, live-art events in response to the images and what they say about the social, cultural and political identity of women in 2017.
