Manchester to the power of 4

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.

Together we…

  • 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 DivaMancamityJam & JusticeCitizen-iHappen TogetherStreet SupportManchester Homelessness CharterParliament Project NorthManchester City of SanctuaryBike HivePushPedalScootNational College for Teaching and Learning.
