GNCCF Live with The Oasis Centre Gorton

In 2018 we took GNCCF Live to the Oasis Centre in Gorton to enable people who don't normally engage in the arts, to take part in workshops with GNCCF exhibitors. We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded Arts Council funding to deliver a year's programme of workshops for clients of this wonderful charity.
