Z Arts Logo

Z-arts (previous known as Zion Arts) was formed in 2000 as a ‘creative space for young people’ with a priority on providing participatory activity. Our mission is to inspire and enable generations of young people from Manchester and beyond to use creativity to maximise their potential.

Creative learning is still at the core of everything we do, both inside and outside the building. We collaborate with schools and communities all over Greater Manchester, spanning the whole curriculum. We strive to be forward thinking in all our projects, making them as relevant, accessible, educational and of course, fun as everyone who takes part in them deserves.

Z-arts creates an artistic hub in our large building with twelve public rooms including a 230-seat theatre, gallery, fully equipped dance studio, music studio, café, rehearsal and workshop rooms. We believe everyone can enjoy creativity, so whatever your age, background or interest, we hope you will be able to find something to suit you, whether you’re looking for something for your children to do or you want to take part and get creative yourself.

Local Offer/ SENDInclusive classes, activities and events. 

The Z-Arts Children’s Library in Hulme is a fantastic facility open to children across the city. It is home to lots of books that celebrate diversity and has been designed for families where there are disabilities and additional requirements.

Z-arts is within walking distance of Manchester City Centre and many of the surrounding neighbourhoods. We encourage people to get here on foot, by public transport or on your bike. We believe in minimising our impact on the environment and we are currently campaigning for better public transport links for Hulme.
