Urbis in Manchester is inviting key stage 23 classes to book a free workshop by December 31 to find out about its new resource, myartspace.

Following a visit to Urbis to explore urban culture and the cities of today and tomorrow, children take walking tours of the city armed with mobile phones, which they use to "collect" objects indicated on a special map and then create an online gallery. The project has been developed by The SEA (an organisation that "uses science, ecology and art to deliver innovation"). An invitation to a myartspace event and teachers' preview in January will be sent to teachers who register their school.
