CFCCA is committed to creating opportunities for a diverse audience to learn, engage, interact and respond to our programme.

We work with a variety of local partner organisations alongside artists and practitioners to deliver a range of engagement activity closely linked to our programme, developing activities which will benefit and enrich the lives of a variety of audiences from young people to our local community.

If you are interested in our learning and engagement programme please contact us at or call 0161 832 7271.
