‘It means so much to be a part of the GM Artist Hub. We are here to be a community for the incredible artists and freelance creatives of Greater Manchester, and stand side by side them and our fellow arts organisations and venues – together, we will get through this.’


Zak Khan (Royal Exchange Theatre Producer) 



In these unprecedented times, we are coming together to offer our support to the independent practitioners, artists and companies of Greater Manchester.

These times call for new ways of thinking and new ways of working.

We’re with you as you make sense of things. Head over to our surgeries page to sign up for a free half-hour surgery session where you can talk your questions through with two of us at a time.

We’re with you as you begin to adapt. From May, we’ll be hosting an extensive programme of workshops to help you find new ways of keeping your creative practice sharp and upskill yourself for the future.

We’re with you as you take the lead. We’ll listen when you tell us what you need and we’ll try to meet those needs as best we can.

With best wishes,
