This calendar was produced by Creative Rusholme as part of our mission to raise the profile of our community and to develop the huge cultural potential of our neighbourhood on Manchester’s Southern Corridor. With two galleries, three parks, a major conservation area, residents from all over the world, including many thousands of young people and on a major transport route to the hospitals, universities and through to the city centre, Rusholme has it all! And we’d like everyone to know it.
The Treasures are shown in the photos above. Can you recognise these places in Rusholme? You can find the Calendar and answers here!
The Treasures of Rusholme and Victoria Park support the idea of Arts based regeneration which is explored in the Creative Rusholme Feasibility Study. It provides an example of how using the physical treasures of Rusholme could be linked to encouraging people to walk around Rusholme and to use the many restaurants, shops and cafes that exist. We hope that one of the local cultural institutions will turn this concept into a reality.
