Northern Quarter Public Art

The tour tracks the transformation of the Northern Quarter since the 1970s when it was in decline in the wake of the Arndale Centre opening.

The area, the one with the highest density of protected buildings in the city, was cited by cultural icon Tony Wilson in the early 90s as being ‘our Detroit’ owing to a mass evacuation of businesses. Abandoned and ruined it was the public art that turned the area around from 1998 onwards, discover that original arts trail and be surprised at what you find!

This is the first collaboration with Hayley Flynn of Skyliner.
