Making manifestos for adult education

A workshop to share ideas on adult education, be creative and have fun

Manifestos produced by attendees of the workshop ‘Making Manifestos for Urban History’ as part of the ‘The State of Urban History: Past, Present, Future’ held in Leicester 11-13 July 2023 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the journal of Urban History (Cambridge University Press).

About the March Forum

Organised by Lucy Faire, Denise McHugh and Chris Williams

This in-person Open Research Forum will be an interactive, creative session which draws on our expertise in teaching, co-operative organisation and love of shiny stickers.  It’s designed to appeal to those who have been a student or want to be one in the future; and to those who have taught, or are teaching, adult learners. But it should also appeal to anyone with a general interest in adult education.

Using a similar format to one we delivered successfully at a history conference last year, the Forum will feature stickers, multi-coloured sticky notes, big felt tip pens, and cake. Most importantly, there will be interesting conversations as we all work together to create manifestos for the future of adult education (not just Vaughan!) in Leicester and beyond. What would you like to see? Come along and talk about it while making connections and having fun.

Please note this session will start at the slightly earlier time of 6.00pm.  Tea and cake will be provided during the evening. There maybe chocolates too!
