A local exhibition space
Do you live or work in Rusholme, Moss Side, Fallowfield or Longsight?
Would you like to share stories, artworks or ideas with the communities in this neighbourhood? Would you like to do this in the windows of the Hall?
While the building has limited physical access, we are using the windows as an exhibition space. The Hall's windows are its key architectural feature - there are 38 in total - and they're a great way of catching passers by in the park.
Exhibitions so far have included 'TSAP@PlattHall', an installation by local arts collective the Terrace Square Artists Project, 'Message to the Neighbourhood', sharing ideas for keeping well in lockdown, and 'Postcards from the Past', a celebration of the history of the park by the Friends of Platt Fields. You can see our archive of projects below.
If you would like to propose an exhibition in the windows, please see our exhibition brief and proposal form.
This afternoon I was not running past Platt Hall with hundreds of Park Runners, but having a leisurely walk. Gave me the (rare) opportunity to marvel at the latest display in your windows. It was a joy to view trees in different seasons, styles and locations. Big thankyou to all the team responsible. New Year's Resolution: slow down when passing Platt Hall and check out the windows regularly."
