Poetry Night

Our Shared Cultural Heritage

After 3+ years, we are celebrating the work of the Our Shared Cultural Heritage ‘kick the dust’ project with a week long series of events across two cities, Manchester and Glasgow, focusing on information-sharing, creative interventions, tours and panel discussions led by the Manchester Young Collective and the Glasgow Changemakers.

Come and join the Our Shared Cultural Heritage Collective as they host an evening of spoken word at Manchester Museum. Performers will share poetry centring around topics of identity, representation, activism, race etc.

Please note, videography and photography will occur at this event, although audience members can opt out of appearing in the content that will be captured.

As this event is in person, and spaces are limited, please only register if you are sure you will be able to attend. Trigger warnings will be shared prior to any performances necessary.

Refreshments will be provided during the event.

Doors open 6pm, event starts 6:30pm.

OSCH is led by the British Council in partnership with Glasgow Life, Manchester Museum and UK Youth. Supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund. For Manchester Museum website, extra info to be added to the events: Our Shared Cultural Heritage (OSCH) experiments with new ways for museums and heritage sector to work better for young people. The project is led by people aged 11-25 and looks at how these sectors can become more relevant, engaging and accessible spaces to explore and connect with others to create new opportunities for young people.  The project is managed by the British Council, in partnership with Glasgow Life Museum, Manchester Museum, with support from UK Youth. OSCH works in collaboration with museums and heritage organisations in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan focusing on projects within each region and collaboratively across regions. OSCH is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund’s Kick the Dust programme in the UK and by the British Council across South Asia to support international collaborations.

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.
