About us

Cartwheel Arts promotes social inclusion, cohesion, diversity and regeneration through community participation in vibrant, innovative, high-quality arts projects.

We use a wide range of media to initiate, and respond to, project opportunities in Rochdale, Oldham, Bury, Wigan and North Manchester, as well as promoting the development of the arts and examples of good practice across the North West.

Cartwheel has over 30 years experience of promoting imaginative, and often challenging arts projects - we do not shy from confronting difficult or sensitive issues.  Our focus is on participation, enabling people who may have had little experience of the arts to explore and develop their creativity and talents, generating a sense of ownership and pride.

We receive annual funding from Link4Life, Rochdale Boroughwide Cultural Trust. Our flagship project Tell Us Another One has been funded for three years by Big Lottery Fund Reaching Communities. Art for Wellbeing is funded for three years by the Henry Smith Charity, having received four years funding from Tudor Trust.

In addition we receive funds for projects from a wide variety of sources, mainly charitable trusts, but also local authorities, the NHS and other government departments.
