A Joint Project of the University of Salford and Manchester Music City Tours
We all know Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and online forums, but before social networks appeared on the Internet, music fans communicated by letters, swapping photos, posters, magazines, tapes, VHS cassettes, inside knowledge, fictional stories and poems about their favourite band or artist. Using the example of Take That fans in the 1990s, the exhibition "Fan Networks in the Pre-digital Age" will examine their modes of communication and networking before the Internet.

As such, this exhibition is an ethnographic field study of the remarkable creative and innovative activities of teenage girls, activities of which there is currently little or no awareness.
