The student engagement programme at Whitworth Art Gallery and Manchester Museum is a platform for students to be active learners, co-producers and engagers. Our ethos is to empower students to develop the self-confidence to lead on ambitious projects, voice their opinions and interpret our exhibitions and collections.
As Student Engagement Coordinator, I work alongside students to facilitate and co-produce student initiated and led projects as well as support student volunteering opportunities. The Whitworth and Manchester Museum are part of the University of Manchester and are creative laboratories, research libraries and social spaces where learning and engagement are both playful and provoking in execution, and serious in intent.
