Take Part - Get creative during lockdown!

Oldham has always been a town alive with culture and creativity.

We are home to thriving buildings and innovative organisations that bring you exciting ways to experience heritage, theatre, literature, music and much more!

We are always looking for people to get involved in our work and we know that many people want to be creative or volunteer to help us do what we do.  

That is why the Arts , Heritage, Libraries and Music services in Oldham have got together to create Take Part, an online space that makes it easy to see what creative activities you can get involved in locally.

Whether you have a minute, a couple of hours or you’re looking for a more regular way to engage in the arts all our activities and volunteer opportunities are posted as challenges on this site, letting you get involved in a way that suits you. When you sign up you choose what interests you and we will send you opportunities that match your preferences.

All you do is accept the challenge of your choice and enjoy! It’s a great way to get creative, learn new skills and you can even get valuable experience if you are looking to develop your career. 

So what are you waiting for? Sign up today to find out what exciting creative challenges and opportunities we have on offer right now.

We can’t wait to be creative you!

Please note that during the current period of social distancing we have a smaller number of volunteer activities that you can get involved in. However we do have lots of online creative challenges you can take part in to support your own creativity and our Arts and Heritage services.
