Manchester Open Exhibition 2022

Everyone’s an artist

Applications for artists to be part of the 2022 Manchester Open Exhibition will open on Wednesday, 16 June.

The first Manchester Open, in 2020 – the most successful exhibition in HOME’s history – saw over 33,000 visitors enjoying 543 artworks by 451 artists. It was the first region-wide exhibition of its type to welcome entries from people of any background and level of experience, including established professionals, new and emerging talent, enthusiastic amateurs and first-time artists.

Now the exhibition will return – and you could be a part of it.

Submissions will be made via an online web portal on the HOME website, and are open to all, including those who may already identify as artists and those who might not, working in any medium. It is free to submit work for consideration, although HOME encourages donations in order to support their outreach and engagement programme.

Come back to this page on 16 June when the link to the portal will be live – and in the meantime, why not enjoy our online celebration of the Manchester Open Exhibition 2020?
