Procession

Thanks for your vision and your time and sensitivity in finding and nurturing the groups that took part in Procession. My friends and I had a wonderful day.
PARTICIPANT

To help launch MIF 09, Jeremy Deller led a uniquely Manchester procession of local people down Deansgate in front of crowds of around 25,000. Deller worked with groups and individuals from across Greater Manchester for over 12 months to create a self-portrait of the city. Around 1,700 people were involved; participants included local ramblers, the 3rd Davyhulme Scout and Guide Marching Band playing The Fall’s Hit the North, mobile libraries, modified car enthusiasts playing a new work by the Black Out Crew and Big Issue sellers, many of them marching under beautiful banners specially made by Ed Hall.

The procession itself was just one element of the project, which also included a major exhibition at Cornerhouse and an ongoing online project led by Let’s Go Global: www.manchesterprocession.com

Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival and Cornerhouse.
