What We’re Looking For:
To get people involved! Make something, build something, write something. Get people talking, playing and interacting with each other. We want to provide fun, interesting experiences that showcase the extraordinary talent here in Manchester and surrounding towns.
We pick themes, activities, and programs inspired by our collections and exhibitions. Check out our upcoming exhibitions and our galleries for inspiration. Currier After Hours takes place in the museum’s Winter garden Café and galleries.
