We are looking for your ideas to make Manchester a better place to live, work and play
We are waiting to find out whether we need planning permission. In the unlikely event that we do and this is not secured, no money will be taken from backers. Bee in the City 2018 will see 85 unique super-sized honey bee's placed around the City of Manchester as one of the cities largest ever public art exhibitions. 15 community groups in the city will be selected to house a customised 2m x 2m sculpture as a permanent fixture at their venue. Manchester Roller Sports would like to BEE a part of this legacy. Our user groups are extremely diverse and this project will allow us to demonstrate the values of collaboration, community engagement and cooperative working that drive our organisation. Our project will be run and led by our community of members and guests and will deliver a focal talking point and sense of identity to our local and wider communities.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Art and heritage are keystones to our identity and culture. At Manchester Roller Sports we breed a culture of collaboration and community for everyone's benefit. Our location in the city is fronted onto one of the main roads to the city, which is in dire need of vibrancy, life and identity. We hope this project will help further inspire our communities to enhance and bring alive this special part of the city. Our users, young and old are teeming with ideas that they would love to develop and share for the greater good. This project will allow those people a chance to create something that gives recognition to the countless volunteer hours they commit.
Steps to get it done:
We have previously successfully crowdfunded via spacehive. We ran a volunteer led clean up and clear out of our centre in August 2017. Our event was attended by Cllr Eddy Newman, Lord Mayor of the City of Manchester, who said "Groups like you are what help make Manchester a special and unique city. The energy, passion, belief & spirit you all show is both inspirational and beautiful. You should all be very very proud" We are very very proud, and would like to build upon that success to deliver a lifelong piece of public art to Ardwick.
