Description

Come and see Manchester Central Library transformed into the International ArtActivistBarbie FLASHMOB DAY headquarters. Featuring “ArtActivistBarbie”, an activist who draws attention to inequality and injustice by posing in museums and galleries around the globe. See her work on Twitter @BarbieReports.

The space will live stream “ArtActivistBarbie” in action, as it happens across 72 countries. Everyone can post photographs of their activism on a special Twitter hashtag for the day.

You can drop in and join the “ArtActivistBarbie” workshops at to become an activist for the day. We will take “ArtActivistBarbie” into Manchester’s cultural spaces to pose for pictures, ask questions and make a comment. Feel free to bring your own activist doll along.
