Not Another Co-Production Festival

Almost one year since we began our Not Another Co-Production Project, it’s time to celebrate all the amazing work that’s been happening with our partner organisations in Greater Manchester. And to help us celebrate, we're holding our Not Another Co-Production Festival! The first of its kind anywhere.

This all day festival event is FREE to participants and co-created with the Science and Industry Museum and other ‘Not Another Co-Production Project’ Partner organisations across Greater Manchester. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

The festival will be a lot of fun, with lots of space to explore the good, bad and ugly of co-production, have conversations, think, dream, ask questions and share our experiences together. It will bring grassroots changemakers together with local, regional and national organisations and movements to forge new partnerships, share practice and learn from social change activities.

There will be, theatre, music, arts, craftivism, pirates, camerados, contemplation, reflection, fun, bunting, fairy lights, deep debate, challenge, laughter, conversation and more. There won’t be banners, leaflets or lanyards! It will be accessible and inclusive. And best of all, it is free to attend including refreshments!

Here’s you’ll find everything you might need for the Festival including the Festival Programme, the Festival Guide, how to get to the Festival and accessibility information.
