PCC DN - OddArts work with Soul Sisters

Odd Arts is teaming up with Soul Sister ( to support a forum theatre project (eventually leading to legislative theatre) piece, developed and performed by women from Rochdale all who have experience of domestic abuse. The play will explore some of the system barriers, challenges & inequalities the women have faced as female survivors of domestic abuse. There is no funding for this project, but OddArts are 'making it happen' by coming together and providing staff. The main barrier to delivery is transport costs to facilitate transporting participating women from Middleton to Rochdale 3-5 times a week over a 9–12-week period.

OddArts are part of the Manchester Peace Together Alliance, a member of the VRU’s Community Led Programme in City of Manchester.
