Join us for an event exploring the future of our public institutions.
Cities are dynamic, diverse and ever-changing environments, so it can be hard to find spaces and places for debate. Can institutions such as museums, libraries and universities offer the kind of open forum needed for active citizenship?
This event brings together fresh perspectives on the changing role of museums in the 21st century. Speakers from the People's History Museum, Liverpool Museums, University of Manchester will provoke debate, with the opportunity for you to pose your own questions.

Come along and hear the astonishing sound of Preston musicians Mobius Loop, who fuse gypsy folk with rap and world music in an energetic live performance. They have to be heard (and seen!) to be believed. www.mobiusloop.co.uk
