The Outreach Programme

Our Community Outreach Programme is the ideal entry point into Arc, with accessible small group courses based in neighbourhoods across Stockport.

Each Community Outreach session lasts for 2 hours and takes place every week for 10 weeks. The creative courses are led by experienced community artists and are designed to help participants build in confidence, relax, increase their wellbeing and feel more a part of their local community. All abilities are welcome.
