Manchester Histories Festival

3 - 12 June 2016

The Manchester Story of 1001 Inventions

This event will explore how  Manchester has given birth to a global campaign promoting inter-cultural respect through awareness of the historical roots of science and an emerging balanced and inclusive curriculum.

This campaign whose, signature  output has been the 1001 Inventions book and  touring exhibition, owes much to the insights of  Manchester’s academic and business community including Lord B V Bowden, Professor Donald Cardwell, Peter Raymond and Professor John Pickstone (founder of Manchester Histories Festival).

Peter Fell and Professor Al-Hassani will tell the story of 1001 Inventions. They will explain how Manchester has been shaped by inventions from the Silk Road and the Middle East, how the history of science can bring Manchester’s communities together, and how an inclusive and balanced education system can enhance inter cultural cohesion. There are many lessons that can be learned from this very Mancunian story.
