In early 2009, Manchester Evening News approached me propositioning that I become their official arts blogger. The blog was entitled "Art City" and I was to write a weekly post on art and life in Manchester. What you see above is the blogs homepage.
Unfortunately this occurred approximately one month before the economic meltdown led the Guardian to make redundant half the Manchester Evening News staff. All blogs and freelance writers were also cut.
And so 'Art City' floundered before it had really begun. In the following posts I am going to upload the articles/blogs that were written before the axe fell (these are now no longer available online).
