Cultural Park Keeper & Park Pioneers
The park keeper re-imagined for 21st-century Manchester: bringing art, nature and people together
Thanks to generous support from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, the Cultural Park Keeper leads, develops and co-ordinates dedicated engagement and wellbeing programmes, partnerships and activities, all with a focus on existing park users and new audiences. There are three strands: participatory programmes for local families, wellbeing and volunteering.
The Friends of Whitworth Park have already worked with the city council to develop an ambitious plan for the park that includes infrastructure improvements (paths, seats, bins and tree planting and so on) alongside other elements such as wildlife areas and sensory gardens. The park is ready and waiting to be a place where great things happen, and we are delighted to be a part of its ongoing revival.
