Document of Now – half term for 14-19 year olds

Manchester is changing.

How will you use photography to capture the social, cultural and political identity of Manchester?

What do we even mean when we talk about social, cultural and political identities of a place?

Work with artist Carly Bainbridge, photographer Quainaat Irfan, and curator Kate Jesson to create a document of now photobook.

You will visit the Strange and Familiar and Pre-Raphaelite exhibitions, take a ‘psychogeographic’ walk through Hulme and Ancoats to capture content for your document of now, and develop skills of interpretation and editing to assemble and present your photobook.

Tuesday 21, Wednesday 22 and Thursday 23 February, 11am – 4pm (lunches included)

Contact Kate Day to book: k.day1@manchester.gov.uk / 0161 2358855

Make your own shadow sculpture with our friendly team of artists. Create your exciting artwork using wire, card and LED lights. Play with your sculpture in the projection space, where your sculptures will move and twist to create crazy and beautiful shadows.
