Panel Discussion: Art and Music

Musician-turned-Artist and Artist-turned-Musician is a common progression as pop stars become new cultural ambassadors and artists acquire the glamour of celebrity status. A lively panel will discuss the dynamic that exists between art and music, and the creative crossovers that make up the culture of a city. Using Air Guitar to explore the nostalgia for musical ‘authenticity’, the mythologisation of Manchester and how music was and can be catalyst for a generation of designers, artists and creative mavericks.
