To Have and To Heal  

To Have and to Heal is a unique new arts and wellbeing programme, supporting recovery and resilience, which explores Manchester Museum’s world class Egyptology collection and popular fascination with ancient Egypt. Participating groups are invited to explore a chosen theme, through which discussion and reflections are shared in relation to the objects and the personal experiences they may connect with. Themes range from Magical Healing and Touch, to Loss and The Meaning of Art. 

You can find further information, and access to short films and photography related to the programme here.

We are extremely grateful to The Esmée Fairbairn Collections Fund – delivered by the Museums Association, for its generous support in making this project possible.  

Sessions are fully funded and FREE, for further information and/or to make a booking contact
