What is Partisan?

Partisan is a space for independent, community led, DIY and cultural based projects in Manchester.
As a co-operative, Partisan is democratically owned and managed by the people who work in and use the space.
There are two areas in our space, a social space upstairs and a gig venue downstairs.
Both can be used for free by community and independent cultural groups for meetings, exhibitions, film screenings, book launches, parties and gigs.
Being child friendly and accessible makes us more inclusive than many similar spaces.
Revenue generated by music events and the café-bar will subsidise the free use of the space.
