The festival will be taking place 11am-6pm on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th March at Rogue Artist Studios new project space – a beautiful victorian grade 2 listed former school building in Openshaw, Manchester
Brought together with the help of our community partners, the weekend will celebrate the importance of creativity, curiosity and imagination in learning. Through artistic platforms, it will ask: ‘what is the future of education?’ at a time when creative exploration in schools remains undervalued and under threat by our government.
The event will mark the culmination of a year-long project of research and development phase, which has seen us connect with over 400 teachers, educators and young people in the North West and beyond.
The festival will include installation artworks, workshops, performances and informal ‘sofa debates’ where anyone and everyone is invited to join in the conversation. Workshops and performances will be led by a mixture of emerging and established Manchester-based artists and will also include collaborative artworks produced through our outreach programme with local schools and youth groups.
