Creative Breaks is a creative work programme led by PANDA in partnership with Union Street Media Arts. Current funding by Association of Greater Manchester Authorities means we can work with up to 25 people per year for this 3 month programme.

The scheme is an exciting opportunity to develop key skills and qualities appropriate to working as a freelancer in the arts or voluntary sector. Creative Breaks offers workshops and hands on experience in areas such as: media campaigns, community development, social change, digital marketing and project management.
