Fresh from their Ghost Village Project where they transformed an abandoned village on the west coast of Scotland, the contemporary art collective Agents of Change will work in secret and on a monumental scale, transforming an urban location in Manchester with spray cans, paint and perception-altering art as part of the Future Everything Festival.
FutureEverything is an award winning, world class organisation using mass participation in creativity and social innovation to bring the future into the present. It has a strong global network and international profile, and is recognised around the world for leading pioneering projects and important international debates.
