Star date: 12th February 2012

VOTE FOR WCML AND THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF DISSENT!

Salford's Working Class Movement Library, on the Crescent, has been shortlisted in a competition to win an artist, who will stage an exhibition of photos of modern dissenters, based upon the Library's incredible archives.

The competition is called the Museum At Night Connect 10 contest, and there's only two other contenders up against the WCML, so we can do 'em, can't we Salford?

For voting details click here…


The Museums at Night Connect10 contest winners get to stage an event involving photographer Simon Roberts, an internationally-acclaimed landscape and documentary photographer who spent a year crossing Russia and was Official Artist of the 2010 General Election. 

This is what the Working Class Movement Library will do with Simon if it wins…

"There are many stories in libraries. Usually they're written down. We want Simon to help us celebrate the image. He will photograph modern dissenters, drawing inspiration from the stories of past campaigns archived in our library. We'll use these, and the public's photographic responses, to debate the power of pictures and writing to move and to persuade".

Sound good? You've got until March 5th to make those votes count. The other two museums are in the Isle of Wight and Guernsey but this is Salford!

Vote via the Working Class Movement Library website –www.wcml.org.uk/connect10

• The People's History Museum has also been shortlisted, in a different category, to win an artist too – you can vote for this great place too by clicking here
