Giving Up the Ghosts

‘Song Lines to Impact and Legacy: Creating Living Knowledge through Working with Social Haunting’, funded by the AHRC Connected Communities programme, has brought together a team of artists, academics and community partners, including Manchester Metropolitan University, Unite Community, the Co-operative College and folk musicians Ribbon Road.

The project has used the idea of a ‘social haunting’ and a range of arts methods to inquire into how difficult feelings, carried into community life from contested pasts, can be harnessed as energies for benevolent and productive change. Based on community workshops run across the north of England, musicians Ribbon Road have created an original song/image piece.

To celebrate the end of the project, you are welcome to join us at the New Vic Theatre in Newcastle-under-Lyme on Monday 27th November from 6.00pm where Ribbon Road will performing the songs created for the project. This is a free event, but please email s.mcnicol@mmu.ac.uk or phone 0161 247 5104 to reserve a ticket.
