Welcome to AHEAD

AHEAD (Arts and Humanities Engagement And Dialogue) is the public engagement programme of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at Manchester Metropolitan University.

AHEAD – Arts and Humanities Engagement and Dialogue, aims to elevate the Faculty in national discussions, advocating for the significance of arts, humanities, and social sciences in addressing contemporary challenges and making a positive difference.

Our research areas include Art, Media and Design (Manchester School of Art); Digital Technologies, (SODA – School of Digital Arts), Humanities, Languages and Social Science; and Fashion (Manchester Fashion Institute).

AHEAD presents a rolling programme of events and collaborations on a range of topics, disciplines and research areas from across the faculty and throughout the year.

Please join us in making a positive impact through research.

We hope you enjoy the programme!
