the Whitworth

The Whitworth's founding statement from 1889 is that the gallery and park should be for the 'Perpetual Gratification of the People of Manchester'; even in the extreme circumstances of the Coronavirus pandemic, when it has been necessary to close the galleries, we have resolved to continue our activities online so that people can access and take part in our programmes from their homes, workplaces or wherever they find themselves right now.

A Walk in the Park

A new podcast series from the Whitworth's Cultural Park Keeper Francine Hayfron, each episode takes a look at what is happening inside and out at the Whitworth.

In this episode of A Walk in the Park, we are introduced to the Queering the Whitworth project led by the Visitor Team staff member Dominic Bilton. Queering the Whitworth started as an online project, via social media in the summer of 2018. The project examined works of art from the Whitworth’s Collection that have an LGBTQ+ connection. The Whitworth's collection spans centuries and is prime placed to tell the history of the LGBTQ+ community through history.

A Place Between the Trees

A Place Between the Trees shares stories from the Visitor Team at the Whitworth. In one of this week's blog posts, Steph looks at the importance of supporting artists and small businesses during this time and presents some of our staff picks of favourite artists, makers, and small businesses.
