Get It Done is looking to scale up our organisation by creating a permanent space to facilitate opportunities and provide platforms for young creatives in Manchester; our eventual goal is to act as a commissioner for projects, providing young and disadvantaged artists more accessible opportunities to produce exciting visual art in Manchester. We are looking for funding to help make Get It Done into a sustainable organisation and continue benefiting Greater Manchester communities. In the past we have run exhibitions, creative community workshops, charity fundraisers, happenings and have collaborated with musicians on nights. We have already planned our 2019 programme, filled with socially-engaged community programmes, diverse workshops and a fresh and dynamic new take on the way visual art is presented in this city.

What we'll deliver:

  • Provide a platform and facilitate opportunities for young Manchester creatives
  • Make an accessible and comfortable space for creativity
  • Unite Greater Manchester communities
  • Contribute to this city and the North's vibrant art scene

Why it's a great idea:

We believe that it’s important to act now in this crucial time of British politics. Regarding Brexit, it’s important to open dialogue, connect neighbourhoods, diversify environments and initiate grassroots change, which we believe our engaging 2019 social programme can achieve. On a more local scale however, we were born out of a frustration with the Manchester creative scene, which in our opinion has fallen a bit flat compared to some of our other city counterparts. In amongst our concerns about gentrification and art elitism, we’re concerned with the migration of young creatives leaving Manchester, due to lack of opportunity, and strive to provide a platform for them to reach audiences inaccessible to them. The migration has a massive impact on Manchester's creative economy and by tackling that we can encourage graduates to help us unlock the city's creative potential.
