The People’s Guide Project is a collaborative project between Kate Dunstone, Chloe Hamill and The People’s History Museum.
During the museum’s Play Your Part project groups from around Manchester have been invited to attend tours and workshops with Kate and Chloe. During these workshops we explore the museum and talk about what we’ve found. Then this discussion is used to create a guide to museum, to allow visitors to share different perspectives.
Soon you will be able to find all the guides created during the project on the reception desk at the People’s History Museum, and even download your own guide to personalise on your next visit.
