Changing Spaces: Toddlertastic at Whitworth Art Gallery

In summer 2013, before the Gallery closed its doors to enable the completion of a major development project, the Institute of Cultural Practices at University of Manchester came along and filmed at a number of our Toddlertastic sessions (weekly workshops for under 5s and their parents/ carers). The footage captured would form part of a research project called ‘Researching the New’ which would explore how our children and parents engage with and respond to the process of change at Whitworth asking the question, what does the temporary closure of the gallery mean to the Toddlertastic regulars, prior to its reopening in the Autumn of 2014?

This film shows the importance of the gallery as a creative and a social space from the perspective of its youngest users and really captures the spirit of what Toddlertastic aims to do. It’s well worth a watch.
