Want to save money and produce extra income but lacking an idea or skill? Always wanted to learn how to sew but never seemed to have the chance? Living in an Affinity Sutton residence or in Gorton? This is the course for you.
Affinity Sutton and Stitched Up have teamed up to bring you 6-weeks of free workshops teaching essential sewing skills to Affinity Sutton residents and anyone living in and around the Gorton area.
Sustained Theatre up North (STUN), Royal Exchange Theatre and Talawa Theatre Company are offering free opportunities specifically for Black Artists to explore with your art form, and other like-minded artists.
You may not think your art form has a place in theatre, but they are offering a workshop in which your creativity, experimentation and collaboration could become a piece of performance for the stage.
The Pankhurst Trust (Incorporating Manchester Women’s Aid) is a Manchester based charity active for over 40 years in the City.

They also provide refuge and community support services for survivors of domestic violence and abuse.
There are four consultation events taking place about the proposed closure of Section 48 and proposed criteria for a new Culture and Social Impact Fund. This is your opportunity to feedback your thoughts and to ask questions about the proposed changes to cultural funding across Greater Manchester.
