RAH! Research in Arts and Humanities Programme

Sarah-Clare Conlon, Literature Editor

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.
