Made you look Made you Stare: Book Launch and Talks

What do we want - and what have we come to expect - when we visit a museum? 

Discovery? History? Connection? Insight? A decent cup of coffee?

We are hosting an event at The Whitworth to explore these questions in the company of some of the north west's finest museum, theatre, poetry and design practictioners at a special evening event.
