Design Manchester's 10 x 10 exhibition explores the theme of longevity

The Bench Self Made Gallery is currently hosting 10 x 10, a collaborative exhibition produced by the city's creative community to launch the first annual creative festival Design Manchester. The event is sponsored by the Manchester School of Art, part of Manchester Metropolitan University, which is celebrating its 175th anniversary this year.
