Artists perform for change in Manchester

The inaugural event in our Artists for Change programme took place in Manchester on 28 April 2024.

The city’s iconic Band On The Wall venue hosted an afternoon of music and storytelling about UK poverty. Performers included Lindsay Munroe, Matt Hill, Hannah Ashcroft, Duvet, and Loose Articles. We also displayed the Dreams & Realities exhibition, featuring portraits of people on the frontline of poverty.

Messages of hope for our future often ring true through music, art, poetry and theatre – and hope is needed in our communities, our towns and cities and across the country.

Artists for Change reflects the ongoing feeling across the country that what the government and opposition propose to tackle poverty simply is not good enough. If we want to see poverty in the UK ended, we need to see real, decisive action and community led change, listening to those in communities to hear what we have to say.

Artists for Change is a community of artists aware of our opportunity onstage, online and in written word to be part of a movement that challenges the status quo and believes that poverty in the UK can end.
