Mapping Manchester’s Stories

I’ll be working on a project next week with @Documentally for creativetourist where we’ll be looking to capture stories of the people, places and history of 5 areas of Manchester: Northern Quarter, City Centre, Spinningfields/Deansgate/Castlefield, Oxford Road and Salford & the Quays.

Who do you think we should be talking to?  It might be artists, creatives, historians, long time residents or someone who has worked in an area for a long time and watched it change, cafe or shop owners, writers or just interesting characters with a story to tell about ‘their’ particular area of the city.

Which, do you think, are the special, treasured buildings and places that we should be featuring?

Do you know of any secret art or hidden gems?

Tell us via @creativetourist @katiemoffat or email me.

  1. I love photographer Neil Roland’s images of Salford-

  2. Tommy Wolstencroft says:

    For the Northern Quarter try Wendy Jones at Majolica Works [] or Michael Trainor of Pop Empires Ltd (

    They have a lot of knowledge of the art installations in the N4
