Crossing the Borders

You are invited to join Wai Yin to celebrate
Crossing the Borders. 

See artworks created by Wai Yin members with
artist Julie Mosley on display in the gallery,
depicting stories of migration and hear audio
recordings expressing hope, loss and joy living
in this country. Handle and discuss objects in
the gallery’s collection and make your own
journey inspired artwork.

Saturday 13th July 2019, speeches at 1:30 pm 

The artwork will continue to be on display
in the gallery on the Floor 1 landing after
the event.

Crossing the borders, funded by the Heritage

origin in Greater Manchester. Please join us to
share this exciting event and find out about the
journeys of individuals who now live in this city.
