‘Seeing comes before words’ (John Berger). Some images are so powerful they have become indelibly associated with the event depicted. They may be catalysts for artistic creation (including propaganda) and criticism as well as subjects of historical research. But as with all primary source material, the evidence does not ‘speak for itself’; it requires contextualisation and interpretation to uncover meaning and significance. Each day school begins with an examination of an iconic image and develops into a full exploration of our subjects, which are:British Fascism, The Civil Rights Movement, and The Vietnam War.Day: Mondays Time: 10.30am – 4.30pm3 linked dayschools on 28th October, 11th November and 9th December 2019Venue:Cross Street Chapel, Cross Street, Manchester M2 1NLPrice per day Price for 3 days Minimum No. Maximum No. £40 £110 9 40Please send your MANCENT booking form with accompanying payment to one of the addresses below.
