News: Arc COVID-19 Update January 5th 2021

With new national restrictions now in place, Arc will still be supporting all our participants through remote delivery of creative projects. This will include:

  • Activities via Zoom, Facebook Live and post, by delivering art materials to each person and through telephone support. Referrals can still be made to or by phoning 0161 474 1462 for our mental health programmes for adults or young people.
  • Arc Centre at Hat Works will not be staffed every day but we will aim to process orders through our online shop, as well as respond  to any telephone messages or post, as soon as we can.  We really appreciate your patience at this time.
  • Don’t forget that you can access 20+ incredible #ArtAtHome activities on our weblog.

We’re still really looking forward to seeing you in person again!

Many thanks,
Jacqui & the whole Arc Team
