MCR Artists wanted!

You might have seen recently on our social media accounts that we are looking for artists to submit for our upcoming event Paint the Town Red (more information on it’s way soooon!). We want to showcase the work of local Manchester talent expressing the theme of “Menstruation” in a piece of work.

Whatever your background, medium, opinion, we want to display your submissions at our exhibition. You could express how you view periods, how PMS makes you feel or how you think menstruation affects your life or those of others. Whether you decide to take a humorous, political, or personal, stance we are asking you to really push the limits of this theme and are looking for creativity, diversity and honesty. The brief is completely open-ended!

Your work will be displayed at PLANT, NOMA at the event on Friday 24 November. Artists will be able to attend for free and have a plus one ticket at half price for only £3 which is the equivalent cost of 2 Every Month packs, providing someone with access to sanitary products for 2 months. Additionally, we will be creating an online gallery following the exhibition where your work can be viewed.

12 artists will also be chosen to feature in the first ever Every Month 2018 calendar. The calendar will be on sale at the event, through our website and at locations across Manchester.

This is an exciting opportunity to really explore all aspects of menstruation creatively, share your experiences with others and help us to share the Every Month message and fund raise for the cause.


We ask you to send your work to along with the form below, which confirms that you are happy for us to display your work and tells us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you. If you have worked with sculpture, print making, painting, (or anything
else!) a low res JPEG will do for now!
