Taking place in the Performance Space at Manchester Central Library, starting at 6.30pm (doors 6.15pm).

We’re very proud to bring Re:Sound, with the help of The National Lottery Heritage Fund, to allow young people in Greater Manchester to connect with heritage through fun audio creativity.

Manchester City of Literature and Unlocking Our Sound Heritage have brought together 3 Manchester based sound artists with 3 Manchester community groups. Each sound artist and community group pairing will be hosted by a Greater Manchester archive, where they will work together to bring audio heritage and local history to life through dynamic soundscaping, collaging and music.

The community groups Afrocats, KYSO and Pendleton Sixth Form College worked with Yussuf Maleem, Jade Parker and Jaydev Mistry at an archive (Manchester Central Library, the Working Class Movement Library and Bolton Archive).

The Event:

This performance is from the sound artists. The artists have created the pieces they will perform this evening after engaging with the community groups in their archives.

From here, our Community Groups will then design their own creative response to the archive footage and artist’s work. The original work the groups create will be showcased in person during the Festival of Libraries in June 2023.

For group bookings of more than 4, please email

This has been made possible by The National Lottery Heritage Fund awarding Re:Sound a grant, raised by National Lottery players.
