The Cultural Explorer Programme provides a FREE cultural entitlement for all local Year Five/nine year-old learners to engage in an exciting out-of-classroom learning experience in one of our four University Cultural Institutions.
Year Five learners in the university’s most local wards of Ardwick, Hulme, Moss side, rusholme, longsight and City can take part in activities at either, Manchester Museum, The Whitworth, John Ryland’s library or Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre.
Financial assistance is available for all schools requiring it. Please contact us for more information.
As part of The university of Manchester’s commitment to social responsibility, we believe that access to culture and science should be accessible to everyone, regardless of background.
The long term aim is to encourage schools to embed visiting into their curriculum and develop long lasting partnerships with the cultural institutions. Both the schools and the University would like to encourage the parents of the children to revisit and so improve their access to culture and science. As part of their visit, pupils receive a wristband that provides them with access to VIP Cultural Explorer incentives if they revisit a cultural institution of their choice with friends or family.
