The Old Courts is part of the Moving Roots project alongside some fantastic arts organisations from around the UK. Our aim is to collaborate with local people throughout Wigan and Leigh to explore the practice of Co-Creation.

Over the next three years we will be working closely with the community to develop new ways to create art in celebration of local voices, people and stories. The project is centred around three performances and the social change that these performances invoke.

Our sounding board will be a group of local people who share our passion for celebrating our borough while effecting positive change and growth.

We will meet once a quarter to share Ideas, discuss the issues and needs in our borough and how this can impact the art we create. You will be reimbursed for your time and this opportunity is available to any local person from any background. We are looking for a variety of folks from inside or outside the Arts industry, parents, young people, retirees, professionals, community leaders, and everyone in between. We want to include anyone who may have felt excluded from the arts and/or under-represented.

We want to hear from as many of you as possible. For more information or to register your interest, please contact
