An exhibition has opened in Manchester highlighting the impact austerity has had on families in the city. The first hand accounts of how spending cuts have shaped everyday life have been documented through a collection of visual and audio materials, and drawings. The idea was to make it less about numbers and statistics and more about the people at the heart of the issue.
The project is the culmination of two years of research by Dr Sarah Marie Hall, in collaboration with North West artist, Stef Bradley. The event was opened by the Lord Mayor.
‘Six Families, Two Years, One Researcher: An Exhibition of Everyday Life in Austerity’ is on show at The University of Manchester this week.
