Gorton Visual Arts has been creating artwork in and around Gorton and Manchester since 2006. We meet once a week at the Aviary Community Rooms in Debdale Park. The group is made up of 18 local residents and Lead Artist Ian McKay.
By involving elderly residents, vulnerable adults and residents with learning difficulties, in a safe studio environment new skills are learnt and shared. Gorton visual arts actively promote social cohesion and inclusion through the arts. We have worked on some fantastic projects including the Belle Vue Mosaic at Gorton Market , Manchester’s Library Theatre and more Recently on the Whit Walks Project with Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry.
