WELCOME TO CoLab!
CoLab is a work in process by the Queerlective team. We believe that the makers and artists of Manchester deserve a creative hub to collaborate, with access to tools and resources that advance their work.
CoLab will offer a supportive environment where you can bring your ideas to life and engage in various artistic disciplines. Whether you're a woodworker, metal fabricator, textile artist, painter or electronics enthusiast, CoLab hopes to provide the tools, resources, and inspiration you need to unleash your creativity and connect with like-minded individuals.
CoLab is not a real place *yet*!
But you can help make this vision for the community come to life! Make sure to stay tuned for updates and ways to get involved!
