Creative Community Inspires Longsight

Young people have successfully led a brilliant project culminating in a creative showcase and open mic night at Longsight Library!

Talented Manchester artists, poets, performers and dancers took to the stage to share and celebrate being part of a creative community. Supportive, explorative and uplifting people boosting each other and sharing a platform.

A group of pioneering creatives came up with the idea for Creative Community following a two week creative digital course held at the Library. During the course the group broadcast a live radio show focused on creative opportunities in the area, and consulted with local residents about what they'd like to see happen.

They then planned out and facilitated six creative workshops for creatives of all ages, with the support of Creative City. Leading up to the Creative Community Library Late.

Incredible acts filled the library with music, life and laughter. Well done team!

Creative Community is back in Longsight Library this November! Find out more via or via our What's On page
