Are you trying to change something? Or do you know someone who is?
We want to make sure that you go down in history.
Come along to the Library and we’ll add your story to our unique collection.
The photographer Simon Roberts (official artist of the 2010 General Election) is in Salford for one day and we want to make the most of it.
Bring yourself and an object that sums up what you do or is important to your cause. Simon will take your picture or a quick video clip and that’s it.
We’ll add your story to the Working Class Movement Library – Salford’s unique collection that captures over 200 years of the stories and struggles of ordinary people’s efforts to improve their world. From women campaigning to get the vote to people banding together to improve their working conditions – this is your history.
Come along to find out what you’ve got in common with campaigners in the past. Do you use Twitter? Two hundred years ago you would have had to use an illegal printing press to get your message out to your followers, then dismantle it and move on before the authorities caught up with you.
