Dab Hands Exhibition Tour

with the artist, Lucy Burscough

‘Dab Hands’ celebrates the extraordinary relationship that we have with our hands. It reveals the value of the skills that can be acquired by repetition and practice, whilst acknowledging the grief and frustration that can disrupt that relationship when illness, trauma, or old age affects our dexterity. 

Lucy creates art with medical and social themes in public and clinical spaces with the intention of boosting health and wellbeing and telling patients’ stories. She is currently our Artist in Residence.  

Dab Hands is funded by The National Lottery, Arts Council England and Manchester Museum.

You can help us care for our collections and bring joy and inspiration to people in Manchester and beyond

As one of the UK’s largest university museums, we care for over 4.5 million objects, with an internationally-important collection spanning from Archaeology to Zoology, and nearly everything in between. We work with communities, support university students and schools in Manchester and beyond and we are a free, inclusive museum for all. But we need your help. Every object we care for, exhibition, school visit and community event comes at a cost, and you can help make the museum as ambitious and impactful as possible.
