Design Manchester & The Warehouse Project join forces to open this year's edition of DM18, Manchester's city wide festival of creativity and design, with an exclusive launch party on Tuesday 9th October 2018, featuring the End Of Store Street exhibition, curated by the original WHP photographer Sebastian Matthes and designer Paul Hemmingfield.
The evening, hosted at PLY in the Northern Quarter, will feature a Q&A hosted by Crack Magazine, looking at creative highlights from WHP history, the impact the iconic design and photography has had on the development of The Warehouse Project's brand and public image, plus the creative philosophy behind the company. Discussing those topics will be WHP Co-founder & Director Sam Kandel, original photographer Sebastian Matthes (06-18), original WHP graphic designer Paul Hemmingfield (06-18) and resident WHP photographer Pippa Rankin (12-18).
With residents Krysko, Greg Lord and Will Tramp providing the soundtrack, the discussion will touch on some of the legendary nights from WHP history, while also looking to the future, after ten years at the infamous Store Street venue and twelve years making its mark on the city of Manchester.
The Warehouse Project & Design Manchester present...End Of Store Street exhibition will show at PLY from Wednesday 10th October 2018 to Sunday 4th November 2018.
