Quarantine were the Manchester partner of the Meet the Neighbours project. They also undertook a residency in Béthune, France from 30 March – 14 April 2018.

Meet the Neighbours was a three-year project (2017-2020) inviting artists into the heart of rapidly developing cities in five countries across Europe and North Africa. Through a series of artists’ residencies in domestic spaces, the project explored the shifting nature of city living, public space, shared knowledge and neighbourliness. In this series of recordings, artists who undertook residencies for the programme interview one another about their experiences.
Meet the Neighbours was co-funded by the European Union’s Creative Europe programme.
