Back to All Events


On Thursday 19th May we will have special access to the wonderful Projecting British Design: the Design Council Slide Collection in focus exhibition at the MMU Special Collections.

As well as browsing the exhibition we will be treated to a talk by John Davis, the curator of the exhibition and former custodian of the MMU Visual Resources Centre. The Visual Resources collection was transferred last year from the School of Art into the Special Collections after a period of uncertainty and now, hopefully, it has found a safe, permanent home. John will explain some of the background of the Design Council, its slide collection and how the MMU came to acquire this very rare and fascination collection. 

It is not only a rich visual treat but offers a fascinating parallel narrative to British post war history.

The exhibition is not on for long so we are very lucky to get this chance to explore it.

The event is free but spaces are limited so we ask you book a place. If you book and cannot come please let us know as not to deny someone else a rare space. 

Please book here

We shall meet at 5.30 for a talk from John Davis at 6pm on Thursday 19th May at
