Manchester Art Gallery
Tuesday 30 July 2019, 1pm–4pm
Free, no need to book
These lively and sociable workshops are led by artist Naomi Kendrick and supported by audio description. Naomi uses the multi-sensory aspects of her own practice to encourage participants to understand the art works on display though touch, sound, smell, sight and sometimes even taste. This approach means that these workshops are also particularly appealing for blind and partially sighted participants.
These Making conversation workshops are open to everyone and take place on the last Tuesday in the month, from 1.00-4.00pm. Each session starts with a question which is explored through an exhibition visit, talking and making activities. This session looks at what International festivals offer local residents – we will be reflecting on the School of Integration project by internationally celebrated artist Tania Bruguera and the festival in general.
A warm welcome to the session with refreshments, and all materials, are provided. Manchester Art Gallery may be able to help with travel costs/arrangements for visually impaired people. Please call Kate Day at the Gallery on 0161 235 8840 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
