50 Windows of Creativity

Monday 26 October 2020 - Saturday 5 December 2020

Various locations across the city,

Cost: Free

Every day

A showcase of the work of Manchester’s artists and makers in windows and spaces across the city.

Wild in Art has partnered with Manchester City Council and event partners Auto Trader and Dandara Living to create 50 Windows of Creativity, an inspiring way to explore Manchester this autumn. 

50 Windows of Creativity will transform the city’s windows and spaces into an innovative art gallery which takes you on a creative journey around the city. The displays feature multiple art forms, from fine art and photography to ceramics, crafts, mosaics and murals - all curated by talented artists, designers, makers and collectives with a connection to Greater Manchester.

The 50 Windows of Creativity displays are in windows and spaces around Manchester city centre and can be enjoyed within social distancing regulations. All visitors are encouraged to maintain a safe distance, wear a face covering when appropriate and be respectful to other trail visitors.

The art trail will help to support the city's art and creative community, its businesses and cultural venues at a time it's most needed.

The pieces on display will be available to buy directly from the artist or maker so it’s a great opportunity to own an original piece of art or find unique gifts for friends and family.

The project finishes with an auction on 10 December 2020 where a selection of pieces will be auctioned with proceeds going to their artists and makers, and to the We Love MCR Charity which aims to help improve the lives and life chances of Manchester people.

You can also download the 50 Windows of Creativity app from the App Store or Google Play (£1.99*). From each app purchase 25% of the net profit is donated to the We Love MCR Charity.

With the app you can:

  • Discover the displays
  • Unlock rewards
  • View your trail progress
  • Find out more about the many talented artists, makers and designers taking part
