In Our Nature pop-up shop on Monday 11th - Sunday 17th October 2021
An immersive nature experience in one of central Manchester’s busiest streets, the pop-up is a beautiful space that turns a typical shop front into one taken over by plants and nature. Visitors can relax amongst the plants, the smells of nature and projections of green spaces from around the city.
At the centre of the experience is a sound installation, featuring 'the sound of Manchester's nature' tracks created in collaboration with sound artist and composer Jason Singh and Manchester’s spoken word collective Young Identity. Visitors can listen to these tracks created by transforming ‘biodata’ generated from plants around Moss Side and a mix of voices from local residents, and vote on their favourite.
Research from Natural England shows a positive link between feeling connected to nature and behaving in a way that is better for the environment. The pop-up will not only help people connect with nature but will also suggest things they can do to help the environment in their local area.
The shop is part of the ‘In Our Nature’ programme (led by Hubbub, Manchester Climate Change Agency and Partnership, Manchester City Council, Amity CIC, the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and Commonplace) working with communities in Manchester to find creative solutions to the climate crisis, using nature as a gateway to inspire positive climate action, with a big focus on removing barriers for those facing barriers to spending time in nature. Other current projects in Manchester include greening concrete alleyways and working with community groups such as Mothers Against Violence to get nature projects off the ground.
The ‘In Our Nature’ pop-up is located at St Anns Arcade, 10-12A St Anns Sq, Manchester M2 7HW, from 9th – 17th October, open every weekday from 11AM-2PM and 4PM-7PM, and on weekends from 10AM to 8PM.
