Take a lunchtime look at public engagement with Engagement@Manchester
16 Nov 2012
The next meeting will look at 'Collaboration between the Arts and Sciences' on 21 November 2012 (1-2pm) in Room 2.220, University Place.
Engagement@Manchester runs a series of lunchtime meetings exploring different aspects of public engagement. All university staff and students are welcome to attend and find out more.
At the next meeting, we explore how arts and sciences disciplines across the university and beyond have worked together to create some amazing engagement activities and opportunities. A few speakers will present short case studies giving a taster of what they have worked on, with time for discussion:
Jenna Carine Ashton Colour/"Chroma"
Jenna will discuss the ongoing public engagement project Colour/"Chroma", exploring the relationship between arts and science, and our understanding and perception of sensory impairment.
Kate Dack Exploring Enhancement with young people
The 'Seeking Perfection' project brought together creative practitioners and researchers to workshop together and develop a public performance for the Manchester Science Festival.
Naomi Kashiwagi In The Mix
Naomi will talk about her work animating the University of Manchester's cultural wonders through new commissioned soundscapes that are inspired by electronic music pioneer, Delia Derbyshire.
