"W" is for West Africa - We Face Forward, art & music
Contemporary West African art is celebrated from 2 June until 16 September at the City Art gallery with the We Face Forward exhibition. It's part of a city-wide series of cultural summer events celebrating the global and the local, exploring the links between Manchester and West Africa.
Also at the Whitworth Art Gallery and the Gallery of Costume, the Manchester Museum and the National Football Museum (when the latter opens on 8 July). Plus related gigs at Band on the Wall. It all looks and sounds really promising to me and I hope to get to see aspects of it over the coming summer weeks. BBC Manchester has a slide show of some of the art on show: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-18331535
Linking to ABC Wednesdays , this week it's the letter "W".
