'Solstice and Equinox Series'

with David Olusoga OBE

To mark the Autumn Equinox and this exciting new beginning as Manchester Museum has recently reopened its doors to the public following a £15m transformation, Professor of Public History, David Olusoga OBE, will deliver a lecture addressing the dilemma facing museums in the 21st Century.

This event is part of Creative Manchester’s ‘Solstice and Equinox series’, a series of events which brings innovative creative artists to The University of Manchester’s four Cultural Institutions. Each of our unique cultural institutions – the Whitworth, the John Rylands Research Institute and Library, Manchester Museum and Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre – focus on building civic, national and international partnerships to advance the social, environmental and individual wellbeing of our communities.

SOLD OUT. The event is FREE and booking is with Creative Manchester via Eventbrite. You can register to attend in-person or to watch via livestream.

The event will be livestreamed and recorded, and made accessible shortly afterwards.

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.
