Open Call for Events 2019, People’s History Museum, Peterloo Massacre

2019 marks 200 years since the Peterloo Massacre, a major event in Manchester’s history, and a defining moment for Britain’s democracy.  To commemorate this monumental anniversary, the People’s History Museum (PHM) will explore the changing face of protest: past, present and future.

A year long programme of events and exhibitions will explore creative disobedience and its role in today’s ideas worth fighting for.

As part of our 2019 public events programme we are pleased to announce an open call for submissions from groups or individuals wishing to showcase or produce an event at the museum in 2019.  We are particularly interested in creatively disobedient events and activities, ranging from the fun to the formal, that relate to our year long theme of protest: past, present and future, or give voice to issues and ideas worth fighting for today.

Please note- Although PHM is unable to fully fund events, we have a small budget available to help support the 2019 Events programme, particularly in relation to travel expenses, material costs and artist fees.  Please outline within the expression of interest form what support you might require.
