Among the tributes left after the Manchester Arena attack in May 2017 were more than 2,000 soft toys. These were dried out, washed and cared for members of the Women’s Institute from branches across Greater Manchester. The soft toys were then distributed to children in Greater Manchester and across the world. This film follows the journey of those 2,000 soft toys.
Thousands of candles were lit to remember the victims of the Manchester Arena attack. One year later, artist Maja Piechocka was invited by Manchester Art Gallery to turn some of these tributes into 22 larger candles – one for each person who died in the attack. These candles were lit in the anniversary memorial ceremony in Manchester Cathedral in May 2018.
