Our GMcr

A celebration of art, culture, heritage and grassroots activity.

A series of festivals, supported by GMCA Culture, that will run across all 10 boroughs starting in Trafford and soon after in Wigan, Bury and Stockport. This programme will harness the vibrancy of our local communities in a joint celebration of Art, Culture, Heritage and grassroots activity.

In particular we are working with those who feel marginalised and disenfranchised from festivals and arts events through lack of connection and sense of belonging.

We reach out to smaller community groups and grassroots organisations to offer them a platform to showcase the work they do and how they contribute to the mental wellbeing of the people of Our Greater Manchester.
