‘What are the people but the city?’ is a precursor to a larger project and is a direct response to What Is the City but the People? It focuses on cultural diversity and community awareness, as we spend time with and get the opinions from a range of locals, including: creative innovators; champions of community interaction; challengers of acceptable norms on abilities and emigres to Manchester. The video sends a message of how diverse and tight knit Manchester is. What are the people but the city was filmed in two weeks, and it is a trailer to a much larger project called the A to Z of Manchester. If anyone wants to get involved, do not hesitate to contact Hira.
