Along with others at UHC and Textbook Studio, I delivered part of Manchester School of Art’s ambitious Unit X pilot earlier this year. 450 first year art and design students used Hotspur House as a base to explore Manchester and work on projects integrated in the city. In our role as creative practitioners we were able to help the students make the leap out of the institution, whilst working closely with course leaders and the project coordinators. By and large the students grasped the freedom and opportunities presented and produced ideas beyond what I’d usually expect from people fresh from A Levels, in confidence, concepts, execution and visibility in the city. I think Textbook Studio are responsible for all these images.
