Calling all Artists; Manchester’s Finest is Looking for You...

We like to think that we provide coverage and support for a lot of what makes up Manchester, like independent business, theatre groups and musicians. But one thing we'd like to do is shine a spotlight on local artists and creatives.

We’re talking about the guys who adorn the walls of the Northern Quarter with stunning, edgy street art. The photographers catching the best side of our city at all times. The painters who are inspired every day by their surroundings.

So here is the thing. We want to help you out. Since moving to our new office a few weeks back, we were blinded by the mind-numbing monotony of a very large blank white wall.

Our solution? We bought a canvas. A very big canvas and we want you to paint it with whatever your heart desires. There it will remain for three months during which time we will give you:

  • Coverage on our social media platforms with a total reach of 2 million per month.
  • Numerous ‘spotlight’ articles on your work for our Arts and Culture section of the website during the three month period
  • We will help you get work exhibited in one of the cities venues using our local contacts.
  • The painting process will be filmed and will be made into a short promotional video for you to use at your disposal.

Interested? We hope so. Email all enquiries to
