Contact is where young people change their lives through the arts. We are a leading national theatre and arts venue placing young people at the heart of everything. At Contact, young people aged 13-30 genuinely lead, working alongside staff in deciding the artistic programme, making staff appointments and act as full Board members. The result is an outstanding, diverse and accessible artistic programme for everyone.
Based in our unique creative building in Manchester, we work locally, nationally, and internationally to provide life-changing opportunities for the next generation of artists, creative leaders and audiences. Recent awards include the Greater Manchester Business Awards Customer Service Excellence award, TMA/UK Theatre Award for Promotion of Diversity, the Co-Op Respect Inclusive Venue of the Year, and the NWBLT Lever Prize for business and the arts.
