Get Creative Inside


This is an activity pack for families in Rochdale borough produced by Cartwheel Arts and Link4Life on behalf of Rochdale Borough Culture Network.

We developed a box of materials and this booklet to help keep families creative during lockdown. We have worked closley with our partners to try and reach those most in need and utilising our online platforms to share with as many as possible.

Many of the cultural organisations in the borough are making more activities, performances and content available online so we have included a section of links for you to explore.

Be sure to tell us about any work you make! We’ve included our social media links so you can send us your pictures!
When this is all over we hope to make an exhibition of the work produced so save your favourite pieces.

Just a little note from all the staff team at Cartwheel Arts to say that we hope you are all well during this challenging time.

Cartwheel’s work has always centred around the power of human connection so we are fully aware of the impact that the distancing may be having.

We are working hard behind the scenes to devise a way of offering these creative connections in another format, as a temporary measure, and will keep you updated when we have something to share.

Following advice from the government, the Cartwheel team are all working from home. The office phone isn’t being manned, but we can pick up voicemails if you leave one, and we are answering emails.

This time will pass, and when it does we can’t wait to see you all and use art as a way to heal and reconnect.
