Creative Lockdown


Creative Lockdown: impact report

When the country was locked down in March, all of our face-to-face activity came to a grinding halt. You can read about how we responded in our Lockdown impact report published September 2020.


Socially distanced Art for Wellbeing

We had to rethink our programme supporting adults with lived experience of mental health conditions. Instead of meeting face-to-face, we've offered telephone support and postcard art projects.


Draw the Day

Draw the Day is our 10 week online programme of art & walking activities, storytelling and an interactive gallery


Creative Care Kits

We were delighted to be invited to contribute an activity to each of the GMCA Creative Care Kits.


Life in Lockdown

Our project about the Manchester Overspill estates of the 50s and 60s, especially Darnhill in Heywood and Langley in Middleton took a virtual turn with a doorstep photography project capturing Life in Lockdown


Stepping Stones

Is this the new normal? Our first steps back to face to face working are taking place in our new marquee. It’s pitched in the grounds of one of Blue Pits housing association houses and has offered closed sessions for residents. But it’s a start!



Inspired by the new ways in which people are connecting, Collaboration invites 10 freelance practitioners to think creatively about how they would address environmental issues, whilst sharing skills and ideas others.
