The Great Exhibition of the North will highlight the dynamic story of the North of England- how its innovators, artists and designers shaped our present and are inspiring our future!
The content and schools offer will align with the themes of the 3 walking routes through the city (Innovation, Art, Design) and the schools’ offer will be strongly linked to STEAM, highlighting how creativity and invention is used within STEM.
