Blue Flower

One And All was a project that brought artists together with a context of community work. The

artists were given free reign to examine and develop new work about the themes of community

and voluntary engagement in regeneration processes in Manchester, through the community

engagement process of Community Network For Manchester (CN4M).

The project took place between December 2007 and April 2009, culminating in two shows - one based around the various neighbourhoods served by CN4M and one at Castlefield Gallery
