A Grand Exposition

A Grand Exposition

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017. 


With a nod to The Great Exhibition of 1851, we present A Grand Exposition, a three-day celebration of the region’s diverse community of artists, makers and creative technologists. Blending exhibitions, entertainment and demonstrations, the event offers a family-friendly sprawl of technological, science-orientated artworks, maker workshops for all ages, illuminated talks that explore the social and cultural impacts of science and technology, and all manner of science-themed live performances.

Check out the full programme here:

A Grand Exposition: Sci Art 

Sci-Art is a brand-new specially curated exhibition featuring artworks that blend science, art and technology. Most of the works have been created by local artists working in the North West who share an innovative approach to using science, data and technology.

A Grand Exposition: Arcade 

Take part in maker workshops, shop for wonderful artworks, clothing and homeware and even bid in an auction. There will be a mix of bookable and drop in workshops and activities happening throughout the weekend for a range of ages.

A Grand Exposition: After Dark 

Join us after hours for adult-only performances by our favourite DJs and VJs alike. Plus, there will be tons of cutting-edge, innovative science up for discussion too. With a distinct yet tantalising offer each evening, you won’t want to miss a single one of these events.
