CADIC Transfer Partner in England


Arcspace Manchester is a virtual and physical launch pad for creative and ethical exchange, run by local community artists, academics and individuals. We are based at St Wilfrid's Enterprise Centre in Hulme, where universities, creative industries, diverse communities and organisations meet. The unique, well-located physical space challenges societal fragmentation. Diverse individuals re-locate themselves by interacting through workshops, training, trading and events.
We cultivate a holistic, environmentally sound entrepreneurial zone, seeding inspiration and cohesion, nurturing creativity through informal workshops and peer to peer learning. People are empowered through intercultural and creative skills-based exchanges – from visual to musical to written word and everything in between using inclusive technologies, academic and international partnerships. Arcspace also exists to unify distant, virtual communities. It utilises free, open source software, a community-led local search engine/ directory (TGL.TV) and re-cycled computers. Progressively, social networking, education and ethical trading will take then place between other local and global clusters.
Arcspace Manchester currently consists of over 250 members, practitioners, volunteers, community mentors, trainees and 4 directors. We draw on the expertise of our diverse membership to align with the specificity of particular projects. The growing group contains researchers, strategists, MCs, writers, musicians, filmmakers, students, lecturers, policymakers, (social) entrepreneurs, editors, VJs, graphic designers, visual artists, teachers, family members, community elders, young people, alternative therapists and more across spectrums of life, learning, trade, creativity and experience.
