About Open Culture Project

Open Culture Project is a community organisation which helps Eastern European communities living in Manchester and Greater Manchester.  They operate mainly in the Cheetham Hill area, but provide community outreach activities to different areas of the county.

About the project

The volunteers and workers of Open Culture have worked with Wai Yin Society for a number of years, helping them to work with the Eastern European migrant community.  Given my ties to Wai Yin, it would have been incongruous of me to turn down working for Open Culture.  Many of the features from Wai Yin’s site went into this site, and these both provided an excellent testing ground for donation features, which are coming soon to both sites (pending management approval).

The project was put on an extended hiatus due to some issues within the organisation, but the new site should be launched by the end of October.
