6.30-9pm. After Hours are evening social events where you encounter the unexpected. Artists, scientists, filmmakers, writers and musicians animate our collections in special one-off performances. After Hours is supported by Barefoot Wine www.barefootwine.com. March’s theme is Fair Trade, fashion, food and film. In partnership with Unchosen Film Campaigns.
Throughout the evening you can explore the Museum’s Living Cultures, Manchester and Money galleries and discover links between the Museum’s collection, cotton and textiles; refashion pre-loved clothes with the help of Stitched Up, a group of earth-conscious fashionista-revolutionaries, who provide workshops and events to inspire a more creative and sustainable wardrobe; or handle some Museum objects.
