A Creative Rusholme project, Portrait of a Street is a collaboration between neighbours Elaine Bishop and Phil Barton who have been interviewing households in their multi-cultural Rusholme street since 2013. Phil has documented their work by taking a photograph of each household in front of their house and will be displaying his images at the Heritage Open Days on 9th and 10th of September in addition to publishing a book aimed at primary schools in association with the Ahamed Iqbal Ullah Education Trust.
Creative Rusholme is a resident led programme to promote the Rusholme neighbourhood as a cultural and community destination. Other projects have included a Rusholme calendar for 2017, a set of postcards and Rusholme Rising creative learning workshops for residents. Their latest project is to plant 47 trees in the name of the late MP Sir Gerald Kafmann who died earlier this year.
