Manchester Practice: Giving babies a voice in Culture!

6 Oct

Coming soon Manchester Practice: Giving babies a voice in Culture!

We are currently piloting activity sessions in early year’s settings and supported visits to Manchester Museum and Whitworth Art Gallery for mums and babies in partnership with early years and other professionals.

We are linking activities to the Nature Discovery and Play and Learn gallery at Manchester Museum and to the Dark Matters exhibition at Whitworth Art Gallery. We are using these pilot activities to develop our practice in engaging parents and facilitating participation for very young children and will use evaluation to inform the development of core programmes and resources for under 2’s in museums and galleries across the city.

If you work in a setting with under 2’s in Manchester and would like to get involved, please contact
Carol Abernethy, Early Years Coordinator, Manchester Museum / Whitworth Art Gallery,
