CFCCA strongly believes in creating opportunities for the wider public and local community to engage, interact and respond to our arts and research programmes.

This involves our expanded public events programme alongside a more targeted programme of activity for families, young people, older people, schools and groups who require further support.

CFCCA works with a variety of local partner organisations alongside artists and practitioners to devise and deliver a range of engagement activity closed linked with our ongoing exhibitions and research programmes.

We believe in working closely with local groups and partner organisations to develop activities which will benefit and enrich the lives of our local community and serve to greater connect the gallery and its work to our local community.

Youthlab

If you are aged 14-21 and would like to get involved with Youthlab please download further information and a registration form here: CFCCA Youthlab – Info and registration form

Youthlab is Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art’s new initiative to develop a dynamic learning advisory board by young people aged 14-21 living in Greater Manchester. The main aims of the group will be to allow young people the opportunity to provide views, ideas and fresh perspectives to inform the galleries future programme and events.

The Youthlab workshop series will run over the summer holidays, with a view to roll on in to an ongoing project from September onwards. For the summer series, participants will work towards an Arts Award Bronze.

Arts Award supports young people to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with & take part in the wider arts world.  As part of Youthlab, you will create a portfolio or arts log that shows off your creativity as well as achieving a recognised award to put on your CV.

Throughout the summer sessions you will take part in workshops, visit art galleries, research things that interest you and share your skills with others.  You will also organise your own event for the August Bank Holiday!

Youthlab will take place at CFCCA in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. Six weekly sessions will take place between 4pm-6pm. The first session will take place on Thursday 27 July 2017 and we aim to have a showcase event planned and organised by participants in the August Bank Holiday weekend.

If you cannot attend each session due to other commitments, for example a booked holiday, please let us know. We suggest each participant should attend at least 4/5 of the 6 sessions in order to complete Arts Award Bronze.

CFCCA can offer a small travel bursary of up to £5 per session per participant for those who need to take public transport to the gallery to attend Youthlab. Please present your valid bus/tram/train tickets at the start of each session.
