Throughout August, fifteen works by acclaimed Manchester, UK and international graffiti artists will be displayed in Kosmonaut in Manchester’s Northern Quarter as part of an exhibition and auction to raise money for Manchester based Mines Advisory Group (MAG).


The silent auction, running until 31st August, will officially open at a launch event on Friday 9th August during which contributors Dan Birkbeck, Liskbot and Russ Mehan will be creating a live mural in the private road behind the bar.

Starting from 6pm the event will have a block party vibe with a BBQ and DJs from the world music night Continental Shift playing breaks in the main bar, who will later go on to present ‘The Discothèque Tropicale’ in the downstairs bar from 9pm.

MAG, which has established an international reputation for its work to reduce the devastating effects of remnants of conflict, will also be on hand to explain just how important your support can be.

Artists contributing to the exhibition are Hammo, Liskbot, Akse, Dan Birbeck, Russ Mehan, Aylo and the Dirty Works crew, Benjamino, Chorlton Zoo and Tankpatrol.
