Gallery: Manchester’s Messages of Hope

Posted: 3rd April 2020

We at Great Northern are calling on Mancunians of all ages to create pictures and images illustrating positive messages for us to share here, and on our social media channels  in the face of the Covid-19 crisis.

Our campaign kickstarted in March with our Deansgate mural by local illustrator, spray-painter, glitter-ator and mural maker, MOZE (Becki Miller) ‘This too shall pass’ . Building on your great reactions to the mural, we are now looking for more pieces of art which can be used to further generate and promote strong positive messages during this challenging time.

So whether you are a professional artist, kids and parents at home, or anyone looking to promote positive messages to Mancunians at this time, send us your pictures, and we will share them in this online gallery, on our home page, our social media channels, and then when we reopen our doors we will create a real exhibition in our warehouse building.

We will then sell off the images, raising money for local charity Forever Manchester, which supports communities across the whole of Greater Manchester.

Entries can be showcased via any artistic medium and can include hopes for the future, resilience in the face of the crisis or thank you-s for the amazing work of the region’s key workers, particularly the NHS.

To submit a piece of artwork simply share your picture and tag the Great Northern Warehouse on any of its social channels; Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.  Or alternatively, please email your artwork to
