For One Night Only\

As a passionate supporter of the arts and to mark the opening of our new Manchester based studio, this year Hawkins\Brown have chosen to sponsor the Manchester International Festival.

Alongside the financial support came sponsorship 'in kind'. Together with Paul Tempest of Ferrious a local design furniture consultancy, we developed proposals for the 'Glass House' which forms the Green Room to the festival within Festival Square. Our brief was to create an artwork that would form the backdrop to the space, which would be programmed for corporate events or for relaxed social entertaining during the course of the Festival.

Using the press photographs of the artists who are contributing to the Festival we created the artwork - 'For one night only' - an assemble of the actors, dancers, players and performers – coming together as an community of creatives embracing the audience in the Glass House. Neutrally rendered and tinted in the Festival livery of pink and green to unite them, the seamless artwork offers a dynamic backdrop to the ebb and flow of festival visitors.
