This August, there is a fantastic takeover programme called This is Human taking place at HOME in Manchester. It launches on Wednesday 9 August at 6pm.
The programme has been developed over the past 12 months by a diverse team of young creatives aged 18-25. They have come up with ideas that are all about exploring what makes us human.
Funding is available to help arts and culture organisations build their fundraising capacity so they can attract more private giving to the sector.
