Creative Cafe

Enjoy making and creating?

Creative Cafe is an accessible LGBT+ youth group focused on all types of art and creativity. We have sessions on things from meme-making to lino-printing; photography to poetry. All decided by the group who attend sessions! So, whether you’re a skilled sculptor or can’t tell a paintbrush from a hairbrush, Creative Cafe is for you.

When: 1st and 3rd Thursdays of every month, 2-3:30pm

Where: online/at our LGBT+ Centre

Who: LGBT+ young people ages 13-25

Rewriting Our Rules

For May-July 2021, we are also trialling a creative writing group on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month. This is open to LGBT+ young people with any level of experience and skill.

The sessions will be run by the Proud Trust and the Uni of Manchester. There will be writing games, guest writers, young people-led activities, and an opportunity to have an MA Creative Writing student mentor you as a writer.
