Mosaic Artist Mark Kennedy has created a new Emmeline Pankhurst piece that has joined his gallery of Manchester related images along the Tib Street elevation of the building.
The image was created by street artist Mancsy who has been developing Manchester themed screen prints since January 2012 and is renowned for leaving ‘Free Bees’ in finders keepers games around the city.
Following on from the week that the suffragette banner returned to Manchester and ahead of next year which will be the centenary of the Women’s right to vote, we felt it was the right time to unveil our tribute to Emmeline Pankhurst.
To celebrate the installation and the forthcoming 100th anniversary, Afflecks will be running a twitter competition whereby we are asking women to stand beneath the mosaic and take a selfie and then tweet it to @afflecksfox and @pankhurstcentre with hash tag ‘I would rather be a rebel than a slave’
Once that we have reached 100 women we will select one woman’s picture and award £100 in Afflecks Gift Vouchers along with a framed Mancsy print of Emmeline Pankhurst. There will also be 4 runner up prizes of a print.
