Joy for Ever: How to use art to change the world and its price in the market responds to the 200th birthday of artist, art critic and social reformer John Ruskin with a joyful look at how to use art for social change. The Whitworth‘s gallery space will host making workshops, talks and performances to encourage new debate, thinking and action on how better to live together today. Part classroom, part gallery, this dynamic project aims to connect Ruskin’s radical critique to our contemporary moment, positioning him as a powerful speaker to our times.

Also check out Ruskin, Turner and The Storm Cloud at Abbot Hall Art Gallery in Cumbria.
