Call for Volunteers: Art Assembly 2022

Posted on 22 May 2022

Art Assembly is a one-day festival of art and creativity, brought to you by Art Fund with some of Manchester’s leading arts organisations, including: Castlefield Gallery, HOME, Manchester Art Gallery,  the Whitworth and The Manchester College.

On 18 June the festival will display new works of art developed and produced by Greater Manchester artists in collaboration with children and young people from the city of Manchester. The works will explore how everywhere can become a place of creative learning – celebrating the idea of the city as an art school. Visitors will enjoy events, workshops, talks, tours and more!
