SALFORD YOUNG STARS WANTED FOR HIDDEN PETERLOO MASSACRE PROJECT
 

Star date: 9th September 2018

YOUNG PEOPLE AGE 15-21 WANTED TO BE PETERLOO LEGENDS

The Hidden Project, which is making photographic tableaus recreating the Peterloo Massacre is looking for outgoing young people aged 15 to 21 to take part in the photo shoot, which take place on either Saturday 13th or Sunday 14th October.

Dozens of older people queued to take part in the Hidden Project casting recently but the shoot now needs younger people.

The Hidden Project, led by photography legend Red Saunders, is looking for outgoing young people able to scream into a camera for its forthcoming photo shoot recreating the Peterloo Massacre in four photo tableaus.

Hidden has already produced lots of recreations of 'hidden' working class history, from Captain Swing to Watt Tyler and the Peasants' Revolt*, and the Peterloo shoot is its most ambitious project yet.

"Those at Peterloo wanted a better world; we want a better world as well and, for me, art and culture and music are a big part of that better world...but not for the philistines who run this country" Red told the Salford Star last month "That's why I appeal to the ordinary people to help us make it in Manchester..."**

The shoot will take place on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th October at Moston Miners Community Arts centre, and those chosen will be needed for just one of the days. Costumes, lunch, drinks and transport to and from the venue will be provided. 

Anyone who wants to take part in this prestigious project just needs to take a selfie photo (head and shoulders) while holding a piece of paper with their name clearly written on it.

Also needed is a separate form with the name, age, gender, clothing size (small, medium or large), email address and phone number. The Salford Star has pre-prepared forms (email info@salfordstar.com) or the information can be emailed direct to hazelannroy@gmail.com

Anyone under 16 must also fill in details of a parent or guardian, and on the day of the shoot must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The information needs to be received before 15th September

Just to be on the safe side they will need to cast extra people so it's possible that some of those asked to come on the day may not be in the final picture. Those wanting to be in the photos don't have to be from Salford but it would be good to have the city's input for authenticity...
