DrummerWe work with a wide range of internal departments and external agencies including public health services, Youth Voice and Engagement teams, Social Services, Housing etc in delivering various arts initiatives and commissions that aim to address community issues.

We support teachers in delivering the National Curriculum. One of our recent projects, Hidden Voices, is an educational resource for secondary schools on the subject of homelessness. 

A majority of partnership projects involves developing initiatives with local organisations using the arts as a tool for communication, consultation, raising awareness, community engagement, promotion and evaluation.

We provide support and advice to individual artists and creative groups that operate in the area to assist their individual or organisations professional development.

The Arts Development officers also work strategically alongside other Arts Development units within local authorities across Greater Manchester and with the Arts Council of England on common priorities such as the creative economy and health and wellbeing.
