Gibberd Gallery - Care, Place and Wellbeing in the Work of Leah Manning

Join The Gibberd Gallery to explore the work of Leah Manning, the influential educationalist, social reformer and Harlow MP from 1945 to 1950.

Artist and researcher Elena Cologni, social historian Peter Cunningham and historian of science Melanie Keene will look at Manning's role in providing ‘global care’, including supporting the evacuation of 3800 children out of war-torn Spain in 1937.

Manning's remarkable example has informed the archive exhibition and site responsive installation ‘CARE from periphery to centre’ at Homerton College, University of Cambridge where Manning was a student.
