This one-day course provides an introduction to a creative approach to group facilitation. It aims to encourage, develop and inspire those with responsibility to lead others through a facilitative process, be it for the purposes of team building, consultation, idea-generation or training. Throughout the day, we will be using a number of different interactive exercises and games in order to illustrate content.
All Arts & culture
A play about young carers in Salford that “knocked MPs sideways” is about to embark on a national tour in June 2019.

Manchester Museum is looking to support new programmes, projects or events that respond to its new Heritage Futures exhibition and are inviting community groups, creative practitioners and researchers to put forward their ideas.
A new project will use cutting-edge ‘emotion-sensing’ technology to explore feelings of loneliness and social isolation experienced by young carers – and help them create music to give voice to their feelings.
Launching on Young Carers Awareness Day (31 January), Greater Manchester-based charity gaddum, and Manchester Metropolitan University, will develop and trial the new technology.
The technology is based around the connection between mood and music, aimed at tackling youth loneliness and isolation among young carers.
