Manchester Spirit Walks

With Brexit fast approaching, it’s important to find creative ways of connecting the communities and individuals to the place they live in. We know that when individuals feel connected to the city they live in there is more pride, less fear, more familiarity, which leads to confidence to make use of what best the city has to offer them. This is why Europia decided to organise 5 city centre walks which will cover sites connected with the growth of Manchester as the world’s first industrial city and its importance as a centre for peace and radical political activity.
