Proud and Loud Arts can shock, amuse, terrify and educate you all in the context of one performance. The group's stunning live installation at Salford Museum and Art Gallery in 2016, called Cells 'a body of work', had some OMG! moments as disability truths, fears and fantasies hit audiences straight between the ears and eyes.

Proud and Loud do edgy, classy, quality art that's absolutely unique, based on their own experiences of living with disability labels, and the social stigma and identity impacts this creates.

Affirmations is a new work - what the group is calling an 'addition' to Cells - and focuses on the same raw emotions that fired the former living installation. It premieres at Manchester Art Gallery this Thursday evening, at 7pm, and promises more of the unexpected.

Developing the show with performing arts students, in partnership with the University of Bolton, and collaborating with top local artists, Artistic Director, Tom Hogan, Movement Director, Susan Swanton, and Designer, Nerissa Cargill Thompson, it's set to be one of those not-to-be-missed nights...

"Working with Proud and Loud Arts has opened up new ways of working for me, the company have challenged my approach to how I make work with artists" says Susan Swanton "It's very exciting and great to have the opportunity to experiment with movement and form without limitation."

Tom Hogan adds: "This is an exciting group of emerging artists who have developed a beautiful, and at times mind blowing, immersive performance. Each art work is a unique piece that pushes and challenges our sometime rigid understanding of identity. We are thrilled to be back at Manchester Art Gallery, it's such a wonderful space to perform; the staff are incredibly welcoming."
