Jeff backs the expansion of public art displays around south Manchester


Manchester Withington MP Jeff Smith recently met with the Matthew Ludlam Foundation and praised their street art projects around south Manchester.

The Foundation was set up in memory of Matthew Ludlam, a south Manchester resident, to raise funds for charitable causes.  One of Matthew’s passions was urban design and the Foundation is funding a street art project in west Didsbury entitled ‘Chasing Dreams not Dragons’ (see pictures).  The pieces were made by renowned street artist Mateus Bailon.


Jeff said: “Great street art like the Chasing Dreams not Dragons pieces can revitalise urban areas and I hope we’ll see a lot more examples like this across south Manchester.

I’m looking forward to working with the Matthew Ludlam Foundation to find new spaces in south Manchester.”
