On behalf of all the University partners we wish to invite you to the ESRC Manchester Festival of Social Science!

This year our programme features almost 40 events on a variety of themes including climate change, virtual reality, mental health in schools, the gig economy, Chinese wellbeing practices, and homelessness.

There will be an event at the Museum of Science and Industry on robots, algorithms and the future of work; a community music making event for those living with dementia; an interactive game which challenges you to create a carbon neutral city; a discussion for casualised workers at Ziferblat Social Space; hands-on activities for the whole family at Manchester Central Library; film screenings; and much more!

The festival’s launch event takes place this Wednesday 30th October at Manchester Museum – free tickets are available at .
