Announcing: Ancient Worlds Student Social at Manchester Museum on Friday 7th December!

Ancient Worlds Student Social

Friday 7th December, 6:30-9pm, Free, All students welcome

Come to a student- curated social event in the new Ancient Worlds gallery with live music, workshops, archeological wonders and more!

The Student Social is a student-curated programme of exhibition premieres at Manchester Museum, which acts as a platform for student talent, creativity and participation. The Student Social also provides a platform for students from different disciplines and universities to chat and network with each other, engage with the exhibitions, and participate in quirky social activities.

Would you like to co-curate the Student Social for Ancient Worlds at Manchester Museum?

I’m looking to work with a group of students to co-curate the Student Social for Ancient Worlds. This will involve you programming the event with a budget of £500; all in response to Ancient Worlds: what music do you want to be played? Which band/s? Do you want DJs? Do you want workshops during the event? Will there be some free drinks? It’s a platform for you to put your ideas into practice, through collaborating and responding to Ancient Worlds. You will also be involved in actively marketing the event to students as well. Some of the budget may be spent on flyers or a promotional video, for example. Here’s the basic event information:

Ancient Worlds at Manchester Museum

To mark the centenary of the first Egypt gallery to be opened at the Museum, you can now experience Ancient Worlds. A free exhibition of three new galleries, this extensive and diverse collection of archaeological finds explores the history of Manchester and the region, as well as ancient civilisations such as Greece, Rome & Egypt.

Ancient Worlds showcases the best of Manchester Museum’s outstanding archaeology collections as well as revealing the people behind the objects: who made them, who used them, who lost and re-discovered them, who collected, classified and interpreted them.
