Street Art: The Modern History of the Northern Quarter

Street Art: The Modern History of the Northern Quarter

star-5
47
Explore the back streets of the Northern Quarter, find film locations and street art and discover how ceramic art transformed the area into the city's coolest district. You can also cast a critical eye on things as you learn about issues facing the city from social justice to public spaces. The tour tracks the transformation of the Northern Quarter since the 1970s when it was in decline in the wake of our first American-style shopping mall, the Arndale Centre, opening. The area, the one with the highest density of protected buildings in the city, was cited by cultural icon Tony Wilson in the early 90s as being 'our Detroit' owing to a mass evacuation of businesses. Abandoned and ruined it was the public art that turned the area around from 1998 onwards. The tour discovers that original ceramic art trail and uses more modern street art in order to weave together the narrative. I donate 10% of profits to local causes. Sustainable, thoughtful and inclusive tourism since 2012.
