  Woman Working by Cliff Rowe

Collection Highlight – Woman Working by Cliff Rowe

Our Object of the Month is Woman Working by Cliff Rowe.  It has inspired sound artist Debbie Sharp who will be taking part in Sound from the Stores, a special late night event which sees artists perform newly commissioned pieces all inspired by the museum’s collection.  The event is presented by Instigate Arts, to celebrate Manchester After Hours and Museums at Night.
 
 
Sally Heathcote: Suffragette, by Mary M Talbot, Kate Charlesworth and Bryan Talbot

Shop Highlight – Sally Heathcote: Suffragette

This month we have chosen the Sally Heathcote: Suffragette graphic novel as our Shop Item of the Month.  It tells the story of Sally, who is reminiscing about her days as a suffragette.  It’s beautifully drawn and an engaging, inspiring way to learn about the struggles and hardships women went through for the vote.
