We've continued our creative projects for young people in Greater Manchester throughout lockdown. Now, we're looking back over their amazing achievements this year.

Future Fires

Earlier this year, we announced our 2020 Future Fires group, and their projects. They have all created fantastic work in spite of the many challenges of Covid-19.

We’ve linked some of their works for you to explore further. We have also linked each of the blog posts that they wrote for this site, where you can read about their projects in their own words.

Here’s some pictures of the Future Fires at socially-distanced in-person sessions at Contact

Creative Protagonists

Earlier this year we announced Creative Protagonists. Working in partnership with RECLAIM, we’ve brought together six young working-class artists to develop their skills and create a radical artistic work.

Here’s Leadership Projects Coordinator Rose on how Creative Protagonists is progressing:

Creative Protagonists have been busy exploring ideas to each create a new piece of socially engaged artwork. The group is made up of poets, musicians, actors, an illustrator and photographer. In 2021 they’ll be supported by Creative Producer Josh Wilkinson and, sharing their work in a multi-artform showcase later in the year.

We can’t wait to see the end result!
