Description

We want to hear from Greater Manchester-based performers, visual artists, architects, musicians, scientists, inventors, writers, creatives, thinkers, designers and digital makers and anyone who can deliver an outstanding creative idea to support this first Corridor of Light.

The inaugural Corridor of Light takes place on the Oxford Road Corridor from 21-23 October.  A celebration, through light, music and ideas of the positive difference the people who dwell, study and work in and around the Oxford Road Corridor are making to our lives today and to our futures, and tipping our hats to the area’s many changemakers of the past.

Corridor of Light 2021 will celebrate language in its many forms. Manchester is home to a wealth and diversity of communities, with 200+ languages signed and spoken. Language is an inseparable part of our culture. Not limited to geography, we create languages to interpret science, cultural heritage, music and engineering, history and even computer programming. From welcomes to songs, from stories to conversations, from letters to code.

This open call is one of the ways in which we are identifying a programme to animate Corridor of Light. We are seeking people and organisations with creative vision to respond to the ideas of this first edition and to undertake new and innovative commissions.

We want to hear from Greater Manchester-based performers, visual artists, architects, musicians, scientists, inventors, writers, creatives, thinkers, designers and digital makers and anyone who can deliver an outstanding creative idea to support this first Corridor of Light.
