Group 34

Pop up digital arts workshops will be delivered in locations across Stockport between Jan-March 2024 which can be used for similar activities in following years and serve as a mini pop up cultural teaching space for Stockport Council. We are Group 34, MMU FutureEverything has been commissioned to support the evolution of Stockport Town centres cultural provision. We have identified a range of communities in Stockport who don't engage with creativity, or the town centre at all. What we need to do is to bring arts activities to them and gradually inspire them to engage with the new offers in the town.

First meeeting in Stockport!

On 01/31/24, we meet our collaborator Jonathan on our site, Stockport.

Stockport is an industial town, and popular for its market now. Recently they want to develop a new city centre and attract people through cultural exhibition events, which is one of the purpose of our project.

We were guided round the town by Jonathan from new area to the old town with a culture route to learn the history of the town, visit existing culture centres and compare the atmosphere between different area. A more detail discussion about the requirement, theme of the project took place at a local cafe. Then the precedent research and initial idea were collected in the following weeks. We are all excited and looking forward to working on this project, hope there is a fantastic journey :)
