Call out! August activities for CAN Young Artists

We’re looking forward to some CAN Young Artists’ activities this summer

Are you a young person interested in drama, visual arts, music, and movement? Want to take part in some FREE arts workshops?

Or do you work with young people aged 13 – 21 who’d like to be a CAN Young Artist during summer 2022? Please pass this creative opportunity along.

This August, we’ll be running sessions in drama, visual arts, music, and movement. Our work with children and young people is rooted in our value of co-creation so we can’t wait to hear the ideas young people want to explore.

The project actively encourages young refugee and asylum seekers as well as young people from more settled communities to take part. Travel costs (with a ticket) and food will be provided.

August workshop dates

We’ll be running workshops in a city centre Manchester venue 1pm – 4 pm Monday 1 August, Tuesday 2 August, Wednesday 3 August, then Monday 8 August, Tuesday 9 August, Wednesday 10 August, and then Monday 15 August, Tuesday 16 August, Wednesday 17 August. 

On 17 August, CAN Young Artists will be part of a special sharing of their work created during the three weeks of workshops for their family and friends to enjoy and celebrate their achievements.

For more information and registration forms, contact Michelle Udogu on 0161 234 2976 / 07561 664130 for more information and registration forms.  Michelle works Monday-Wednesday 9.15am – 5pm. Just leave a message.


And here’s what young people created in our Easter CAN Young Artists workshops.  It’s a beautiful film inspired by the concept of ‘freedom’ created through film, drama, music, songwriting, and creative writing.  Enjoy their film Sparks of Freedom!
