Join us for this (free) celebration of the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector. The evening will be hosted by our Chief Executive Mike Wild and will feature films from local community groups and volunteers as well as thank you's from key people involved in Manchester's communities. As well as being a big thank you to everyone for the work they have done over the past year there will also be a competitive element. Under three award categories the audience on the evening will vote on the shortlisted films to determine the winner.
This one hour Zoom session will give you space to chill out and have a creative play and mess around with whatever art materials you have to hand, even if that is the back of an envelope and a ball point pen.
In the workshop, Gemma will guide you through mindful meditations and simple art making to move from the busyness of the mind to the expansive, restful space of the heart connecting with your creative playful side.
A brief description of The Circus House
The Circus House CIC is nearly 10 years young! They are a social circus in central Manchester. They are passionate about using circus as a tool to build resilient members of communities. From youth circus sessions, including performing in shows and going on trips, to adult weekly fitness circus or therapeutic circus sessions. They pride themselves on having compassionate teachers and a welcoming community.
What to expect from the session
Earlier in the year, Macc held a couple of webinars looking at individual and team resilience. As we move in to the winter months, our routines have to change and we will be tackling real challenges, both personally and at work.
In this webinar, we will explore the key aspects of winter resilience, the specific current challenges you might be facing, and you will have the opportunity to both share your personal challenges and to offer your ideas to help others.
At last year’s AGM the focus was on the next stage of developing our campaign to fight for access to justice for our communities across Greater Manchester. We celebrated the progress that the Law Centre had made and looked forward to expanding our work.
The general election provided opportunities to expand access to justice and to reverse the cuts to legal aid and we highlighted that we had secured funding to develop our advice offer and looked to expand these across Greater Manchester in partnership with others.
