GREY MARE LANE ESTATE MEANWHILE LAUNCH

We joined One Manchester at the launch event for their Meanwhile Site, on Grey Mare Lane Estate. It was filled with street art, football, and growing activities. We were joined again by theatre company Malandra Jacks, delivering a range of craft activities for kids. It was a great chance to meet residents, listening to how they feel about their community, what they are interested in and let them know the Den will be coming to their doorsteps in 2023.
