Who we are

The Lowry offers a range of workshops and resources available for schools ranging from the Early Years Foundation Stage, Key Stages 1-4 and FE/ HE. We have a broad range of creative workshops that explore the LS Lowry Collection and local history as well as the content in our ever changing Special Exhibition spaces & Award-winning Theatres. Through both visual and performing arts these workshops support & link to the Art & Design, Performing Arts, History, English & Drama Curriculum.

What we do

We connect The Lowry and its artistic programme to people and communities through: Targeted Engagement, Talent Development, Employability and Skills, Learning and Participation and Creative Leadership. The content of the annual programme that delivers against these strategic pillars draws its inspiration from The Lowry’s artistic programme and from the wealth of opportunities that exist for people and communities to engage across the breadth of The Lowry.
