Click on films tab and you will find three films that tell some of the stories behind A Different Spirit. The films are produced by Belle Vue Productions and Professor Helen Rees Leahy from the University of Manchester. You can hear from 42nd Street staff, young people and the artists involved, including Alistair Hudson who was then at Grizedale Arts. They are great films, providing lots of insight, and I am sure you will enjoy them.
