All this afternoon the Secondary and Post-16 team have been planning the next couple of terms on the en-quire project. Its a very exciting time, with lots of creative ideas flying about – more details to follow in the next couple of weeks!
One of the things we wanted to achieve as part of this work with artists has been a series of sustainable programmes that can be offered throughout the year and that work with some of our talented artist educators already on staff. We have been lucky to secure funding from the North West Museums Hub, part of Renaissance in the Regions, through their Pathways and Progression programme.
This programme aims to provide Museums and Galleries in the Manchester area to develop their work with secondary schools. Here at The Manchester Museum we have a well established Science and Humanities programme and arts programming has not been a core part of our offer until very recently.
With this funding we have developed three exciting new workshops that highlight the diversity of the collection and use the Museum galleries as sources of inspiration for creative learning and we can offer them FREE OF CHARGE which is wonderful news.
More details on each of the sessions will follow, along with information on the forthcoming trials and images. If you are a teacher, or have a friend who is a teacher, and you want to know more, please contact one of us at The Museum, or even leave us a comment below so we know we are not alone!
