The company was originally established under the name of Lingua Franca World Music Community on 30 November 2010 as a vehicle for a funding application to Arts Council England relating to the Cultural Collage World Music Festival, a multi-venue celebration of the arts of the diverse communities of Manchester, which took place in the city centre and beyond between 2010 and 2014. It did not trade actively between 2014 and 2016 and underwent the name change in January 2017.
Our current directors are Geli Berg, Kanchan Maradan and Pat Mackela. We are all artists in our own right and each of us represents one of the diverse communities of Manchester. We are always seeking new directors to represent other communities of multi-cultural heritage.
