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)

Restriction and Release Fashion Show

Manchester Art Gallery has commissioned students from King David Sixth Form, Loreto College, Manchester College and Xaverian College to develop responses to the 14-18 Now exhibition Fashion & Freedom. They have been inspired by experiences from the First World War, exploring what was happening to women and making connections through the themes of restriction and release.

The commission involves students making outcomes that will become part of their portfolio with some being showcased at this fashion show take over of the gallery.
Join us for a stylish evening to celebrate Manchester’s Emerging Designers.
