Moving Panorama (2018)

We are currently working with people with lived experience of homelessness at The Booth Centre, Manchester, combining visual art, songwriting and performance to create scrolling artworks (Moving Panoramas).

arthur+martha’s artist Lois Blackburn has been working with songwriter Matt Hill (The Quiet Loner) and partners, The Booth Centre and The People’s History Museum.

We are finding creative ways to embed history & creative writing into artwork and art & music into history, allowing participants to inhabit another skin and leave homelessness at the door. The resulting work, included a filmed live performance to the public at The People’s History Museum on Monday 11th June, and was part of the Manchester Histories Festival, and displayed as part of People’s History Museum, Represent! exhibition.

One of the first songs written for the project Moving Panorama, Lyrics by Gary Cundle, sung by Matt Hill.
