Manchester to the power of 4

M4 is about co-creating conditions for human growth and liberation, and taking that into the work we do together, the work we do with others, and the change we inspire in the world.

Together we co-produce safe & inclusive spaces to nurture human growth and social change. We have been exploring a vision of a ‘whole self’ region in Greater Manchester, 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.

Who are we?

We are an open & independent collective of citizens based in Manchester – here are some of those involved.

We bring a range of skills and experiences including facilitation, coaching, action research, digital innovation, strategy, planning and campaigning. We welcome anyone that shares our values to be part of M4.

We are each involved in a variety of projects across the region including DivaMancamityJam & JusticeCitizen-iHappen TogetherStreet SupportManchester Homelessness CharterParliament Project NorthManchester City of SanctuaryBike HivePushPedalScootNational College for Teaching and Learning.

Together we…

  • Commune (coming together and connecting people)
  • Explore (coaching and facilitation)
  • Collaborate (idea sharing and integrated projects)
  • Influence (storytelling and lending voice)
  • Innovate (ideas generation,  prototyping and user testing)
  • Act (drive social change)
