OLDHAM GLOBAL CREATIVE COMMUNITY (OGCC)
OGCC brings together freelance creatives from all backgrounds, who are based in Oldham and its immediate surrounding areas, to creatively collaborate to produce local projects which will raise the visibility of our diverse local communities and develop income generation.
The network was initiated just before COVID lockdown in early 2020 and we subsequently received support from Comic Relief through Greater Manchester BAME Network. As a result, we were able to develop three new local projects: Around the Fire: Storytelling Across Cultures in partnership with Bittersweet Coffee and Dessert restaurant, 10,000 Steps Around the World, funded by Arts Council England and Northern Roots, which takes place on 28 May 2022. A further project Dancing Around Oldham funded by Get Oldham Moving is currently in development.
