We're delighted to announce that Project Speak Your mind, our collaborative project with Z-Arts, has been nominated for a Manchester Culture Award.

The project started as a result of working with the creative staff at Z-Arts to form the Young Reviewers programme, a unique and exciting opportunity for young people in Manchester.

Z-Arts delivered their first Young Reviewers project, Speak Your Mind, as part of Big Imaginations Festival in 2017. Ten young people aged between 10 and 13 from around Hulme took part in reviewer training workshops before reviewing each of the shows during the festival.

The project was a brilliant opportunity for young members from our neighbourhoods to travel across the North West, visit different theatres and see the work of exciting production companies from all over the country!

The Manchester Culture Awards ceremony will take place on Wednesday 14 November – we'll be keeping our fingers crossed!
