MCR Live x Manchester Museum: After Hours on Thursday 4th October 2018
As part of Manchester Museum's After Hours season, MCR Live is curating a series of FREE events in the museum! Yes, FREE! That's not all - drinks for the evening will be provided by Camden Town Brewery & Jägermeister, whilst Pioneer DJ will be providing high-quality equipment and sound systems. The events kick off on Thursday, October 4th, with the first event promoting the launch of the new 'Women In Nature' exhibition which celebrates the contribution to the study of nature by numerous women, whilst telling their unique stories. Tickets for this event are FREE and are available from Skiddle.
Starting with a tour of the new exhibition by some of the fascinating women who have contributed to it, there will also be a workshop led by textile artist Natalie Linney showing you how to produce your very own piece of print by using the hapa zome method. (The Japanese art of beating leaves and flowers with hammers; pounding natural pigment into cloth.) To end things, & to coincide with the exhibition, MCR Live have curated a HUGE line-up of some of the best women DJ's, artists & collectives in Manchester.
Providing a mix of cutting-edge electronic & world music, music for the evening will be spread across two rooms & provided by:
