Jubilee mural project update – places still available


Our Jubilee art project is underway. It’s not too late to join in with our workshops, which are taking place every Wednesday at MDC between 10am and 3pm. This project is organised through our Wellbeing Group. We are working on creating a mural (wall painting) incorporating British Sign Language, as well as an information board and a photography wall showing different stages in the making of the mural. 

The finished product will be displayed permanently on the wall of our courtyard. There will be a grand unveiling event on Wednesday 7th September. 

10 people have attended the workshops so far and have been enjoying learning new art, craft and design skills as well as learning about the history and the meaning of the jubilee event. On 8th June the group visited Manchester Art Gallery for a tour of the gallery as a way of gaining inspiration for their own project planning.

This project is being led by Deaf artist Glenn Palin

Glenn is based in Manchester and has become known for his work which incorporates his own take on the Manchester Bee image into pieces which are inspired by his experiences of being in the city.

Thanks to The Arts Council and Forever Manchester for making this project possible


We were delighted that Forever Manchester made a visit to Manchester Deaf Centre recently to learn more about the services that we provide, the benefit of these to the local Deaf and hard of hearing community, and the importance of funding from organisations such as their own.
