SURGE is the first chapter in our engagement work. SURGE is a cross-arts programme for artists of all ages, offering space and time to discuss ideas, develop new skills and meet other artists.

Our first iteration of the programme featured workshops from professionals in writing, movement and visual art, and centred on a exploration of art as a form of activism.


SURGE was first launched as a month-long course in January 2018, supported by Arts Council England, HOME and The Manchester Jewish Museum.

We are in the process of developing SURGE to be a regular feature of our work and of the Manchester engagement scene.
