Greater Manchester is home to nearly three million people. There are many things that make us different but what do we have in common with each other?
The Voices of Manchester project was led by four volunteers and was inspired by Jo Cox’s words: ‘We have more in common than that which divides us’. We wanted to know if this was true.
The project team invited local people to step forward for an experiment. We matched strangers from different backgrounds and asked them to take part in a recorded conversation.
Watch this animation and hear highlights from those conversations.
This display and project were developed and implemented by a group of four participants: Asma Begum, Catherine Chan, Joseph Timan, and Roger Rendell. The animation was created by Woven Ink.
The More in Common: in memory of Jo Cox exhibition will be on display at People’s History Museum until 24 April 2022.
