We would be delighted if you could join us for an event celebrating the Manchester activities of the AHRC funded Cross-Language Dynamics: Reshaping Community Project, a multi-partner consortium which is part of the OWRI (Open World Research Initiative).   

Language, Community and Creativity will take place at the Martin Harris Centre tomorrow, Friday 31 January 2020, at 1:30pm. 

The event will include a presentation of the new opera Daedalus by the composer Professor Philip Grange and writer Fiona Sampson, MBE.  Students from both the University’s Music Department and the RNCM, will perform an extract from the opera.

There will also be a showing of a short film exploring how language-learning enriches both individuals and communities and a presentation of an initiative to make Manchester Museum a model multilingual institution.

After the close of the event at 3:30pm, you are very welcome to stay on and join us for the launch of Philip Grange’s latest portrait CD Homage.  The launch will involve a short presentation, which will be followed by Grange’s Elegy for solo cello performed live by Gemini’s Sophie Harris.

This event is presented in partnership with Creative Manchester.

We do hope you are able to join us. Please register your interest via eventbrite 

Best wishes,

Steve Hutchings
