RAH! is the brand-new public engagement programme of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at Manchester Metropolitan University, springing forth from the successful HiP Festival, which got going in 2013. RAH! – or Research in Arts and Humanities, to give it its full moniker – sees Manchester School of Art and Manchester Fashion Institute get on board for an even bigger and better offer for the general public to enjoy.
RAH! will be presenting a programme of events throughout the academic year, with forgotten, marginalised and previously untold stories the focus of the inaugural 2017/18 Finding Voices showcase. Think lectures, seminars and discussions, screenings, shows and workshops, and artist happenings, archive interventions and augmented reality – all of which you’re invited to get involved with. From a film about Moss Side in the Seventies to a close reading by Professor of Poetry Michael Symmons Roberts, we pick five events for the rest of the year.
Here are our picks
Watch, listen to and participate in artists’ presentations, displays, creative responses, performances and workshop activities, and sneak a peek at some of musician and composer Delia Derbyshire’s archive.
Join award-winning poet Michael Symmons Roberts for a special event as part of the Encountering Corpses conference, when he will read from the series ‘Food for Risen Bodies’, taken from his 2004 collection Corpus.
