Big Saturday – Go Green! June 2, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — enquiremanchester @ 3:12 pm


This Saturday (6 June, 11-4) the lab on the 3rd floor of the museum will be transformed into an artist’s studio.  We’ll be taking over the whole space with paper butterflies, bees and beetles and setting them free to run away with our ideas.

After thinking about all the ideas around sustainability of our planet that will be going on all around the museum, we’ll have the chance to create something which develops our ideas and shares our thoughts with other people.

We’ll be asking the whole museum to help us out by supplying all the paper we’ll need to make paper poetry and creepy crawlies to carry it away.  Then the whole lot will be recorded and added to flickr for people around the world to see, enjoy and be inspired by.
