MARKERS brings together nine commissioned pieces of artwork from Manchester-based artists who have each selected a hero from the footballing world to honour.

It will explore each hero’s journey and the steps taken to complete a mission, explore their call to action, skills they equip themselves with and their learnings. Focusing on the impact these heroes have made beyond the white markings of the football pitch, it will explore themes of LGBTQ+ rights, immigration, women’s football and ethnic minorities.

Heroes included in MARKERS includes Eric Cantona, Raheem Sterling, Park Ji-sung, Mary Phillip, David Beckham, Lionel Messi, Pete the Badge, Justin Fashanu and Lucy Clark.

The exhibition also features a dedicated Community Creative Hub, allowing all visitors to represent their football heroes in an an artistic and creative way.
