Manchester Art Gallery

Schools and colleges

Responsive Spaces

It is our ambition that every child or young person in Manchester visits this gallery at least once during their education – we believe it’s their cultural entitlement. With this in mind we are asking how we can best support schools and colleges to make this happen.

This question is informing how we are working and how our programme is changing. We are partnering with local institutions to help open our eyes to new approaches to looking and fresh ways of thinking. Children and young people are playful and risk taking and we want them to encourage us to be open and responsive to their needs.

We are here to listen to ideas, plan activities and support learning. Let’s work together and make the gallery an inviting space for pupils and students.
