Sally-Ann Wilkinson co-founded Wild in Art with Charlie Langhorne in 2008 after they worked together on CowParade Manchester. Before that she worked at Granada Television during its time when it was voted the best television company in the world. Bee in the City was produced by Wild in Art in partnership with Manchester City Council, bringing all Manchester’s communities together to create the exhibition, and includes an inspirational learning project to give children and young people the chance to take part. The public art trail ran for 9 weeks after which the sponsored Bee sculptures were auctioned off raising £1.1 million for The Lord Mayor of Manchester’s Charity, We Love MCR, to improve the lives and life chances of Manchester people. Although Sally-Ann has now stepped aside as Director to start a new chapter in her life she continues to be passionate about widening participation in the visual arts through accessible events and creative learning programmes.
