Show Notes

This episode was recorded on Oct 8th 2021

This week on the show we are joined by Dr Jenna Ashton (@heritagemcr). Jenna is a Lecturer in heritage studies at the University of Manchester and her current project, Community Climate Resilience,  is working with working class  communities in Miles Platting and Newton Heath through folk pageantry (@CreativeResMcr).  We look at what folk pageantry actually is, how art can help develop working class spaces and galvanise communities, and how we should use art and crafting to help imagine future utopias.
