Manchester’s Contact, the contemporary arts organisation on Oxford Road, has announced plans to discuss its proposed redevelopment with its neighbours and to hear their ideas.

Currently devising a refurbishment to take place over the next few years, Contact is planning on submitting plans to Manchester City Council shortly, but is keen to hear what the local community thinks.

The proposed redevelopment is key to enable Contact to meet the demands of the public and to continue its work with young open and involves redeveloping the Contact to hugely improve the venue and provide more opportunities and activities for young people and the local community.  The redevelopment is set to take place after provisional capital funding of £3.85 million was awarded by Arts Council England to transform the building.

The community consultation event will take place on Friday 12 June from 5pm until 7pm.
