Intended to bring art, people and ideas together, the free-entry Thursday Lates programme at The Whitworth continues to be a great platform for a variety of creative pursuits in Manchester.

Among its forthcoming events are a pair of collaborative and group presentations, as well as an in-conversation with one of the gallery’s current curators, Elizabeth Price.

On 18 August, Price will discuss her latest exhibition, entitled In A Dream You Saw A Way To Survive And You Were Full Of Joy. The celebrated Turner Prize-winning artist has brought together a collection of sculptures, films and images depicting our bodies’ many recumbent poses. It requires advance booking, so click here to ensure your place.

Next up, on 25 August, Mumbai’s CONA collective have curated a range of hands-on mini-events, featuring talks, music and a zine workshop.

Into September, there’s a multimedia project coming to fruition on Thursday 8th. Contrasting and combining the skills of photographer Simon Bray and artist Tom Musgrove, The Edge Of These Isles is a collaboration showing the differing results and interpretations of seven of the UK’s most scenic landscapes. The event includes an in-conversation with Bray and Musgrove, along with an installation bringing together film, photography, art and the launch of an accompanying book.

It’s ideal for those who can’t attend the gallery during its regular daytime opening hours due to work
