|Dates:||5 September 2020|

We're delighted at Manchester Museum that our friends at Pure Arts Studio are sharing their work with Manchester Museum in short films on Saturday 5 September as part of Manchester Histories DigFest2020.
Tune in at 1.12pm to hear artist Sarah Bradbury introduce Pure Arts Studio's animation workshops as part of Calm Nights at Manchester Museum. At 1.16pm hear about the #heirlooms project inspired by visits to Manchester Museum & the Heritage Futures exhibition. An online digital exhibition will be part of the DigiFest2020 online gallery.
Running across two days, Friday 4 September and Saturday 5 September, DigiFest 2020 will work with individuals and community groups to present their stories, ideas and creative content. A pop-up TV Studio is being developed from which the full programme of activities will be broadcast live across the globe.
DigiFest is the creative solution that Manchester Histories has developed with its partners, due to the impact of Covid-19. At the heart of DigiFest 2020 remains a celebration and recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act (1970), a landmark piece of legislation that was pioneered by Lord Alf Morris (1928 – 2012).
Alf Morris was a social reformer who was born and lived in Manchester, where he served as MP for Wythenshawe for 33 years. To reflect and explore the anniversary of what is known as Alf’s Act, DigiFest will be inspired by the themes of Celebrate – Learn – Challenge. Individuals and groups are invited to take part by both inspiring the content, or by getting involved in a project to create the content.
