Hidden by Red Saunders resource packs

Why not book a visit to bring your group to our next stunning changing exhibition Hidden by Red Saunders. An Impressions Gallery touring exhibition, Hidden recreates great moments in the long struggle for rights and representation in Britain. To accompany the exhibition we have created lesson plans and resource packs for KS1 to adults, which will be available on our website soon.

PHM on the road: NUT Conference 2013

Come along and meet the Learning Team at the NUT Annual Conference 2013.  We will be exhibiting from Friday 29 March – Sunday 31 March 2013 at the BT Convention Centre in Liverpool.  Pop over and say hello and find out about our fantastic Learning Programme.  We will be bringing along a selection of our NUT collections for you to see.  Pick up a special offer voucher available to anyone that books during the conference.

Drawing on Manchester

Did you know that you can explore the old and new buildings of Manchester with an artist? In the morning your group can experiment with different drawing materials around the city then create a large scale version of your drawings back at the museum in the afternoon. Suitable for KS2, KS3 and beyond. “Fantastic for the children to go out and walk around the city centre, taking in the sights and learning new things about their city”, All Saints Catholic Primary School.

Come along and meet the Learning Team over a drink, find out more about how your group can explore and be inspired by Hidden, and have a taster of one of our workshops that link to the exhibition. All those attending will receive a special discount voucher.

Unlocking Ideas Project

Unlocking Ideas is a collaborative project with the Working Class Movement Library in Salford. It makes links between the organisations, drawing out the stories that are currently hidden in the collections. The outcomes are revealed through the blog Unlocking Ideas. The project also seeks to work with community and school groups so they can use the collections for their own research, and then tell the world about it. If you’d like to know more please contact
