Thank you to everyone who participated in our Through a Manchester Window project. We received some fantastic windows from children, young people and adults alike, and as we start to come out of lockdown, we want to share some of the artworks you created during lockdown…

Some colourful masterpieces and pencil sketches from students at St James CofE Primary School and St Catherine's Primary in Didsbury.


Thanks to the Manchester Health Academy for sending the artworks penned ONTO their windows

We had a few fantastic & colourful contributions sent in from Moor Allerton Preparatory School


Thanks to those who scripted poems or "word-windows"! This poem is from Sharon Jones, a job coach with the Manchester College, and a word-window from a student at Abraham Moss Community School...


And a big thank you to all the students at Abraham Moss Community School who sent us some really fantastic views from their windows, imagined or otherwise!





#ThroughaMcrWindow was a way of connecting people across the city, allowing us to be alone together during a unique time in history - thanks to all who contributed!

Watch the film made about our Launch Week! With thanks to Mike Bailey, Production Manager at Abraham Moss Community School.

At this amazing time in human history... 

All around the world, people are stuck indoors and sharing the view from their window. Show us the view from your window in Manchester - real or imagined, in any art form!

Draw or collage what you see, write a poem or sing a song - it's up to you!

We'll upload your windows onto our website as they come in...
