This year we partnered with Manchester Art Gallery, which is one of the country‚Äôs finest art museums. They mix works from their wonderful historic collections with the best international contemporary art to bring fresh perspectives to familiar images, create visual dialogues and encourage conversation and debate. They welcome over half a million visitors each year to their venue in the heart of the city, a blend of historic and contemporary architecture that echoes our innovative artistic programme. 

They brought an interactive session called Mindful Marks to the event. A drop in drawing activity where you make marks to music and sound. Join artist Naomi Kendrick as she guides you in drawing to sound in a mindful way. It was an excellent session to inspire creativity and imagination.
