How can art, the gallery and Manchester’s public collection be used to support climate justice?
How can they help us understand history and shape the future?
The recently formed Manchester Art Gallery Climate Justice Group includes artists, activists and gallery staff. In this first of a series of public events we aim to introduce the group and share a range of responses and developing ideas for wider conversation.
