Change Makers

Leading artists, scientists and storytellers share their expertise

Artist led workshop for Schools – Climate

The programme aims to feed and encourage children’s inquisitive nature and present a platform for children to have their say and share thoughts and feelings on society today and things that matters to them.

Alongside a cohort of forward thinking pupils Year 5 pupils from Abraham Moss Primary, the Whitworth has designed a brand new co-produced session with local artists linking to environmental themes in Whitworth Park. Children have challenged attitudes to green spaces, explored nature and park life, redesigned dream parks and settings and created manifestos with green pledges as an action. This brand new, issue based, workshop is now live for schools to book for September onwards.


To book, please email with three dates that work for your school and we’ll take care of the rest.


Change Makers invites schools to Imagine, create and design solutions to solve problems in today’s ever-changing world. As a University art gallery, the Whitworth has invited schools to come on a journey with them to help shape and respond to the world we live in both locally and globally.


The Change Makers programme uses art, Manchester University researchers, creative thinkers and pupil voice to explore issue-based learning that intends to make positive difference in school communities.
