100 days of Devo Manc

The Devo Manc hub has commissioned three short stories to mark the first 100 days of Greater Manchester's first mayoral term.

Author Sarah Butler, who specialises in place-specific writing, has been commissioned by the Devo Manc hub to write three short stories which explore what Devo Manc might be and mean for the city. Sarah met with a range of academics working on Devo Manc, as well as other residents and campaigners in Manchester. She asked each of them: If Devo Manc was an animal, what would it be? Their answers inspired 3 stories for release in the run-up to 100 days since Andy Burnham took office.

Accompanying films of Sarah reading the stories on location around the region, released on 2, 9 and 16 August, can be viewed here.
