Collaboration and partnership working is the foundation on which Manchester Histories is built. Our positive and proactive approach to working with others is evident in the ability of our small team to deliver successful projects that engage a wide range of people.
Manchester Histories builds partnerships of mutual benefit. We support our partners to deliver their strategic objectives, while receiving support to achieve our aims.
For example, we are supporting Manchester City Council to achieve their ambitious aim of making Manchester a zero carbon city by 2038, by training our people in carbon-reduction, delivering our Environmental Action Plan and being an active member of the MAST Network (Manchester Arts Sustainability Team).
We have long-standing partnerships with the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University. Both institutions were involved in establishing Manchester Histories.
