Organised by Dr Rachel Dickinson and Professor Dale Townshend
John Ruskin (1819-1900) was one of the most influential Victorians.  A hugely popular public speaker and renowned author, he helped inspire all kinds of movements that shape our world today: the setting up of the National Trust, a national health service,  and the early Labour Party; arguing for fair working hours,  fighting against pollution and climate change and the stressing importance of art and craft education for everyone.  He developed these ideas by looking  closely at Gothic of France and Italy architecture, and at artwork rooted in Venetian Gothic. This evening offers an introduction to Ruskin's ideas, focusing on his influence on Manchester, and how Manchester also influenced him.
