Creative Breaks is the name for PANDA’s creative work programme. In 2016/17 Creative Breaks is focussed on Greater Manchester where we are delivering in partnership with Union Street Media Arts and are funded by the Association of Greater Manchester Authorities.

The programme seeks to develop key skills and qualities appropriate to working in the arts; marketing, event promotion, digital media, campaigning and project management but transferable to self-employment and many other career paths.

In 2016/17 our programme is strongly centred around the areas of arts, community and social change.

Our project is particularly suited to those interested in one/more of the following:

  • Team leading & project management
  • Marketing & campaigning
  • Research & journalism
  • Community engagement
  • Social Issues/Activism
  • Cultural & Creative industries
  • Self-employment

Participants receive intensive training during the project in community engagement, project management, short film production and editing, campaign strategy and branding as well as social media and website/blog creation. They are also be given the opportunity to achieve Arts Award as part of the project.
