From stylists and radio presenters to photographers and artists, ManchestHER (MCHR) is an ongoing project that aims to put the spotlight on just some of the amazing women that make up the Manchester music scene. Putting together this project so far has been incredible, and a great excuse to use my graphic design degree too.
A special that to Lucy Harvey of Unity Radio and Manchester Hip Hop Archive for both inspiring this project and coordinating it with me, as well as to everyone who has gotten involved in the project so far.
