Calling Manchester artists for Telling Tales – a Playday and Scratch



This is a big ol’ call out to you artists and makers based in Manchester – we’re coming your way!

On Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 July we’ll be hosting a Playday and Scratch; Telling Tales over with our friends at HOME in Manchester.

We will be sharing Coney toolkits exploring our principles of adventure, curiosity and loveliness, working towards building stories to scratch on the Sunday. Coney Associates, Afreena Islam and Toby Peach, will invite exchanging of ideas with wonderful Mancunian minds.

Telling Tales will run over the weekend:

On Saturday, from 10am – 6pm, we’ll spend the first half of the day facilitating workshops and will exchange Coney toolkits, and for the second part of the day we’ll help you create an idea working towards building stories to scratch on the Sunday. 

On Sunday, from 12 – 6pm, you’ll have access to the space and can use this time for developing what you’re making. The public Scratch event will run from 6-8pm.

So what you waiting for? If you’re a Manchester based artist or maker (of any form) and you’d like to get involved, we’d love for you to get in touch. Drop us an email at by Monday 18 July at 12pm noon.

If you’d like to come along but you can’t make one of the days or a particular time, just let us know and we’ll do our best to make it work.

Happy scratching!
