From July to September 2021, we will be running weekly singing and creative workshops at The Whitworth.

These free sessions, open to anyone with experience of homelessness, are a great opportunity to sing and have fun, explore exciting stories and characters, and meet new people.

For eight weeks from 16 July to 3 September, we will deliver an artistic project that will explore uplifting triumphant music, celebrating overcoming challenges.

The Streetwise Opera group in Manchester has performed at The Lowry, The Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester Art Gallery, The Whitworth and other venues and events.

It also took part, alongside The Sixteen, in Streetwise Opera’s production The Passion at Campfield Market in 2016, to critical acclaim.
