We are an independent collective in Manchester, collaborating to nurture social change. Our mission is ‘Space for Liberation and Human Growth’.
We share a vision of Manchester as a ‘whole self city’, working together for change in a holistic, human-centered, way. We take notice of and promote strength, wholeness and well-being of self, others and place.
- Influence (storytelling and lending voice)
- Explore (coaching and facilitation)
- Commune (coming together and connecting people)
- Collaborate (idea sharing and integrated projects)
- Act (drive social change)
- Innovate (idea generation, prototyping and user testing)
- Co-produce (human and digital solutions)
Who are we?
We connect to move towards this common vision, bringing a range of skills and experiences including facilitation, coaching, action research, digital innovation, strategy, planning and campaigning. Here are some of the people involved so far.
We come together to co-create safe, inclusive spaces that support personal growth alongside social change. We welcome anyone that shares our values to join and co-create M4.
We are involved in a variety of projects across the region including DivaManc, amity, Jam & Justice, Citizen-i, Happen Together, Street Support, Manchester Homelessness Charter, Parliament Project North, Manchester City of Sanctuary, Bike Hive, PushPedalScoot, National College for Teaching and Learning.
We want to co-create Manchester4 together, so this website is a work in progress. If you share these values and would like to get involved, we would love to connect with you.
“Nothing about us, without us, is for us.”
