Devolution promised to open up new opportunities for community engagement and empowerment, shifting power from Whitehall to the Townhall. One year on since the election of Andy Burnham as Mayor of Greater Manchester, Jam and Justice’s Action Research Collective are hosting a debate in Manchester Central Library to discuss the changing horizons of collective decision-making in Greater Manchester.
It’s free, but please book your place via Eventbrite: www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/debating-day-double-down-devolution-ticke…
The debate is part of the 2018 Manchester Histories Festival, one of a series of events during a day of exchanging different ideas and thoughts through debating, and discussing topics that have or are shaping our histories and society.
Manchester Histories is a charity that delivers projects, events and activities with communities that reveal, share and celebrate Greater Manchester’s diverse histories and heritage.
