Conversations with History: Past, Present and Futures of Manchester’s Art Ecology

Dani Child, Senior Lecturer in Art History brings together historians and creatives working in Manchester and local regions on the occasions of the 200 year anniversaries of Manchester Art Gallery and Manchester Met and the 40th anniversary of Castlefield Gallery for two public events. These events initiated important conversations about the past, present and future of Manchester (and the North)’s art ecology.
