2020 has been a challenging year for Manchester, with many famous festivals and productions unable to proceed during these unprecedented times. However, the annual Festival of Social Science, which takes place from November 7th-15th will go ahead as planned in a new virtual format. The local version of this national festival is now in its sixth year – academics from The University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University and University of Salford will be partnering up to present the very latest in social science research.

The Festival showcases Manchester social science research to a broad non-academic audience. This brings together an eclectic blend of activities designed to celebrate the social sciences, including discussions and debates, exhibitions, film screenings, walkabouts, family fun days, schools visits, workshops, and lots more.
Aims of the Festival
Through its Festival of Social Science, the ESRC aims to:
This workshop will provide an opportunity for School/College learners to attend an interactive workshop providing them with an overview of funded research recently undertaken in Manchester. The convenors worked with the Council and some local schools and colleges to explore whether there were any links between social media use and political extremism. The workshop will use the project as an example of how to plan research, gather data and analyse it.
This is an invitation only event. For further details, please contact Muzammil Quraishi (email@example.com)

This interactive event recognises the collaborative engagement of young people (11 upwards) and practitioners across Greater Manchester in responding to the threat of child sexual exploitation.
Ann Coffey MP will open the event, as her research in engaging young people’s ‘Real Voices’ has been foundational in cultivating a range of interventions and developmental projects across our region. We want to celebrate the work that has been produced and in particular the contribution made by young people.
We begin with a film produced by GW Theatre which explores the complexity of child sexual exploitation. This will be followed by a festival of activity where young people and practitioners will be able to share and learn from the multiple projects. These include the development of a psycho-social engagement model for NHS England and the Greater Manchester Police led CTZN app.
Refreshments will be provided.
