In partnership with the People’s History Museum, Cities of Hope is proud to present the latest in our #tributetohope series in remembrance of events 200 years ago at St Peter’s Field where the oppressed gathered, defiant.
Symbolically, this was a huge project for us and we were humbled that our patron, Axel Void, committed to producing this piece. In addition to the mural, Axel was available to meet activists that are today fighting to make the the world a better place.
The Peterloo Massacre was a defining moment in the history of Manchester and it was only fitting that the People’s History Museum should provide a canvas for this commemorative piece. Through tragic circumstances, Manchester became the birthplace of radical protest, playing a vital role in supporting equal opportunities for all.
As well as improving the aesthetic appeal of the People’s History Museum’s home, Axel Void’s new mural will help to further signpost the museum to additional potential visitors from across the world, ensuring as many people as possible are aware of Manchester’s part in telling the story of protest, democracy and freedom.
Many thanks to IPAF for their support with this project.
