This is us! Oldham’s Schools Linking exhibition
4 July – 5 September 2020
This online exhibition is the culmination of visits made by Oldham Primary School children to Gallery Oldham, Oldham Music Centre and Oldham Coliseum Theatre during 2019-2020 as part of the Schools Linking Project.

The Linking Project supports schools to develop a positive, cohesive ethos by helping children to explore identity, celebrate diversity, promote community and champion equality.

Originally planned as a Community Exhibition at Gallery Oldham, COVID – 19 means we are showcasing the children’s amazing artwork, drama, and songs here online instead.

Banners of the Ragartmuffins
22 February – July 2020
The artists Ian Beesley, Tony Husband and Ian McMillan have been working with dementia groups all around the country to create banners campaigning for a better understanding and representation of those living with dementia. This exhibition charts their work in Oldham with The Ragartmuffins, who are part of the Springboard Oldham dementia carers group.
