5 Minutes Of Peace

5 Minutes Of Peace

26 Aug - 27 Aug

At this free event, artist David Hoyle will be taking up residence on Chorlton Street in the Gay Village during Manchester Pride's Big Weekend. Join David for a friendly chat and to have your portrait sketched, which you can keep as a memento. 

5 Minutes of Peace offers Manchester Pride festival goers some momentary respite from the festival hustle and bustle with free hand and shoulder massage on offer by supporting artist, Adele Fowles, plus we will be providing apples to help you on your way. 

5 Minutes of Peace is part of UNSEEN: Simultaneous Realities, an arts project delivered by Portraits of Recovery and supported by Superbia to explore the viability and desire for Greater Manchester LGBT+, South Asian and disability groups in recovery from substance use to be more visible and better understood.

Manchester based visual arts charity, Portraits of Recovery work with contemporary art and artists to bring about new ways of knowing addiction and recovery.
