Better Buses for Greater Manchester public meeting for Get Together and Get Things Done
As part of our project Get Together and Get Things Done, Manchester Art Gallery will be hosting events that are about current issues that people would like to change through collective action.
This event is one of a series throughout 2019 that will enable people to find out about current campaigns in Manchester. For this event we’ll be exploring why our buses in Greater Manchester are not working as well as they could be. Come to our first public meeting to find out more, and join the campaign to take action for better buses.
Meet in the Martin Parr gallery space, followed by refreshments in Studio 1.
Book on Eventbrite via Better Buses
