Find out more about Head for the Hills project, and Manchester's arts and health movement, in this talk by Langley Brown from Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU).
A group of MMU History of Art and Design undergraduates are assisting to curate Head for the Hills2, an exhibition about a 1980s project that culminated in a mosaic mural that celebrated a series of visits to Kinder Scout. This project was inspired by the 1932 Kinder Trespass, and especially by Benny Rothman, who was closely involved in the ground-breaking mosaic project. The mural was opened by Benny in 1986 and was a feature of the headquarters of Central Manchester’s mental health services until destroyed on the rebuilding of the Manchester Royal Infirmary.
The completed Head for the Hills2 exhibition will open in April 2012 at the Edale Moorland Centre during the celebrations of the 80th anniversary of the Kinder Trespass.
