The Fire Within, Wigan – exhibition opening

The Fire Within, The Galleries, Wigan (Sat May 11, 2019).

The upper floor of The Galleries shopping centre in Wigan town centre hosted Wigan Council’s launch of #TheFireWithin – a new manifesto outlining the borough’s focus on arts and culture over the next five years.

The strategy was turned into a visual piece of art with the help of internationally renowned artists and Standish residents, Al Holmes and Al Taylor (Twitter: @AL00100110AL), and was coined #TheFireWithin.
