Many Types of Graces - EMBARGOED UNTL 16th SEP

6-10pm, free, no booking required

Royal Northern College of Music’s long street-facing window offers a portal into the building beyond, and the new music developed, practised and performed here. For Corridor of Light, social arts practice May Wild Studio and RNCM’s international students present a captivating, site-specific installation in this space, to be viewed and interacted with from the Oxford Road Corridor.

Its title is a line from the Made in Manchester poem: these words particularly resonated with the students, whose stories are central to the creation of this innovative, participatory artwork. Many Types of Graces explores and celebrates their sense of place, and their experiences of living and studying in Manchester.


All audience members at RNCM (including staff and students) over the age of 18 are required to wear a mask and present appropriate Covid Certification to gain access to the building for performances. Find out more here. Audiences will be able to access the sound inside Studio 8 via a QR code on one of RNCM’s Oxford Road-facing windows.
