Our work is enriched by working with a variety of collaborative artistic, financial and delivery partners.

Their vital input, creativity, funding and networks enable us to develop and share our innovative programme of work and to reach some of the most marginalised groups in our communities.

Successful collaborations over recent years have included:

Speech Bubbles
In partnership with London Bubble and working alongside Oldham Theatre workshop and Peoplescape Theatre, M6 deliver the innovative Speech Bubbles programme in primary schools across Greater Manchester.

The initiative supports the social and personal well-being of Key Stage 1 children through a specially designed programme of weekly drama workshop sessions. Our work with the children and teachers of Sandbrook Primary School in Rochdale and St Mary's RC Primary School, Middleton has run successfully since 2013. As of September 2015, funding has been secured to include delivery at two further primary schools in the Rochdale borough.  

To find out more about Speechbubbles, take a look at this short video which explains more about the project's work.
