… today we take a look at the venue of Envirolution 2010, The Contact
We were lucky enough to be able to use The Contact as the venue for the first Envirolution. It is a very diverse and vibrant setting, which allowed us to get creative to showcase inspiring Manchester projects.
Many of us know The Contact as the castle-like building on Oxford Road but it is much more than that. I always looked on the turrets from the bus and wondered what treats the building had to offer.
The Contact is a multi-function venue hosting such delights as theatre, music, artists, spoken word and festivals (like Enviroltuion). They also promote a lot of young talent, one of these brilliant groups I have been lucky enough to work with is Young Identity who are a spoken word group from Moss Side.
The Contact have just launch their new website, it is worth a look. Click Here
