Manchester Day Parade

It’s all go at Woodend Mill today with a large number of the artists getting ready for Manchester Day Parade, which is on Sunday 11th June in Manchester City Centre.  I didn’t go last time but as a lot of my fellow Woodenders are working on something for the parade this year, I’ll probably go and have a look…

Salvage! the ‘junk sculpture project’ will be there parading their amazing kinetic fish and bird sculptures built from scrap and salvaged materials by young people in Failsworth.  Last seen at the Illuminate event, both sculptures need bikes to power them but they were static last time – I’m interested to see how they will be moved along during the parade. See my fellow blogger CatalystJunkSculpture for some background and great photos of the project.
