Odd Arts

  • Odd Arts uses varied art-forms to empower young people in Manchester to make change and increase their sense of belonging and purpose.

  • Projects are underpinned by theatre but often use other media to challenge and change attitudes and behaviours.

  • Its Creative Community Resettlement programme (CCR) uses arts to increase wellbeing for young people facing mental health challenges enabling them to understand the world and themselves differently.

  • CCR provides a wide variety of creative experiences such as theatre workshops, videography, creative writing, dance, music and cultural trips.

  • Chimo has funded the appointment of new member of staff to develop and expand the reach of the CCR programme.
