THE DISRUPT RESIDENCY
The DISRUPT residency brought together 11 of the North West's most exciting young artists to create brand new music based around themes of protest, to link into the 200th anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre. Over 4 days the artists worked together to create five original tracks using Peterloo, and their own experiences of protest, as inspiration.
