Reaching Out is our outreach programme. We regularly work with other local organisations to deliver free workshops with the aim of broadening the cultural offering in the area and using artistic projects to bring together people from diverse backgrounds. We work with children, young people, families and older people across Rochdale to boost wellbeing, increase confidence, supported people to learn new skills and have an enjoyable and accessible experience.
Alongside each outreach session we also create a make-along art video inspired by the workshop which can be found on our social media channels.
The sessions themselves are tied in to diverse ‘Days of Note’ such as Refugee Week, Play Day, World Mental Health Day, Black History Month etc. as a means of building an awareness and appreciation of diversity within the community.
