Call to Action
Date: 21st March 2017 9.30 -4.00pm
Venue: Peoples History Museum, Left Bank, Spinningfields, Manchester M3 3ER
Cartwheel Arts curated Call to Action, a showcase and action building event that highlighted, and built momentum of social movement research and activity happening across Greater Manchester.
NHS England, Royal Society of Arts, New Economics Foundation and Nesta joined social action groups from the #LiveWellMakeArt network, Catalyst and Food as a Social Movement. The event brought together 148 people who have been actively involved in building more socially connected and healthy lives within communities.
Creative workshops, talks, performances and films shone a light on local social movements and Greater Manchester projects. There was a Low Fri Network wall promoting connections, opportunities to contribute to mini movements and creative inspiring 'moments' through the day.
The event was held at People's History Museum in Manchester which is an inspirational venue holding and displaying some fascinating material and information on past and current social movements.
