Express Yourself: 10-week Challenge celebrates the spirit of Manchester libraries through a series of creative challenges, designed by local artists and young creatives.

Brought to us by Longsight, North City, and Wythenshawe Forum Libraries as part of the Creative Spaces programme, Express Yourself: 10-week Challenge is based around weekly themes, such as strength, self and community with challenges aiming to inspire and uplift, leaving us all feeling a little more positive.

Each week, you’ll try something new, from sketching and writing to beat-making, dance and drawing.

These bite-size activities are designed to easily fit into your day, they go live every Monday on the Creative Spaces website until July, you can also explore the challenges on social media using the hashtag #CreativeSpacesMcr.
