About this event:
As the Autumn Equinox approaches, we celebrate new beginnings, and in particular, the reopening of the University’s Manchester Museum following a £15m transformation. A brand new two-storey extension has been built as part of the capital development project, and includes a stunning South Asia Gallery, Lee Kai Hung Chinese Culture Gallery and Exhibition Hall. The Museum’s vision is to become the most inclusive, imaginative and caring museum you might encounter.
To mark the Autumn Equinox and this exciting new beginning for the Manchester Museum, Professor of Public History, David Olusoga OBE, will deliver a lecture addressing the dilemma facing museums in the 21st Century.
This event is part of Creative Manchester’s ‘Solstice and Equinox series’, a series of events which brings innovative creative artists to The University of Manchester’s four Cultural Institutions. Each of our unique cultural institutions – the Whitworth, the John Rylands Research Institute and Library, Manchester Museum and Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre – focus on building civic, national and international partnerships to advance the social, environmental and individual wellbeing of our communities.
