The School of Arts & Media is collaborating with the University of Salford Engineering Society and the Manchester Tramway Museum Society to create a touring exhibition and performances connected with the construction of a replica of a ‘Tank Tram’.
A Tank Tram is a tram ‘disguised’ as tank, used as a war bond fundraising stunt in 1916. The stunt is being revived and the Tank Tram will travel in the region in 2016 as a focal point for a current debate about the relationship between new technology and war.
This installation will showcase Albert The Tank Tram as a focus for interdisciplinary collaboration within the University of Salford and with community performers.
