Fashion & Freedom
“This new approach should be used across the board. The activities have helped to build a year round programme.”
Ruth Edson, Manchester Art Gallery
14-18 NOW supported the development of Manchester Art Gallery’s intergenerational activity with an evening of art, fashion and heritage. Co-created by the age friendly team, it enabled a hands on approach to engagement.
Activities were developed to help new audiences connect to the themes of the Fashion & Freedom exhibition while developing new skills in curating, storytelling and digital content generation.
A series of digital storytelling workshops for young people was hosted by the gallery using the exhibition as a starting point for active lines of enquiry and the celebration of female role-models, these can be viewed below.
