As part of British Art Show 9 (BAS9) in Manchester, a group of local creative people worked to make change in their city. The Art Agents worked with BAS9 ’s art, people, spaces and resources to explore questions inspired by BAS9 ’s cultural framework: ‘Whose voice can be heard? Who is able to act? Who gains from such actions, and who bears the costs?’
The key motivations behind the Art Agents project were community led, learning together and legacy of change.
