Event description

Description

Manchester's cultural and HE organisations offer a sometimes bewildering range of creative learning opportunities designed to support Teachers/Educators in delivering curriculum teaching and learning from early years through to post-16.

This event brings many of those providers together, just in time for curriculum planning for the 2017/18 year in an informal market-place setting that will allow teachers to see exactly what is on offer. There will also be opportunities to sample some of the Continuing Professional Development on offer for teachers.

A special guest keynote speaker will introduce the event, after which there will be an opportunity for teachers to browse the marketplace of stalls, where the schools offers of most of the city's cultural organisations will be on display. Refreshments will be provided.

This event is free and supported by Manchester City Council and Greater Manchester Higher.

Women's Time: Gender Identity and Time as themes in Carol Ann Duffy's Poetry- Delivered by Angelica Michelis, Senior Lecturer, English

This session will look at some of Carol Ann Duffy’s poems (mainly from Mean Time; Feminine Gospels and The World’s Wife) by considering the ways in which they comment on the complex relationship between time, signification and (gender) identity. Focusing in particular on memory, and how time in its particularisation of past, present, future impacts on identity and our sense of being in the world. By referring to poems such as ‘Nostalgia’, ‘Medusa’, ‘The Map Woman’ and ‘Valentine’, the workshop will reflect on the links between poetic form, voice and time in order to explore how we experience time and, simultaneously, how our experience as a self is shaped by it.

Suitable for KS 2 to 4, English, Literacy
