Opened in July 2017, Partisan is a collective and largely volunteer-run space for independent, community-led DIY and cultural projects.
Partisan is democratically owned and managed by its members. Anyone can become a member. We employ three coordinators, who are responsible for the day-to-day running of the organisation with the support of our co-op — a dedicated group of volunteers.
Revenue generated by membership, office and room rental, events and our café-bar subsidises the free and affordable use of the space for those that need it.
Partisan is currently closed yet we are reopening this year from our new home in Salford. Our new base in Ordsall will host a communal space, offices an event space and will be fully accessible.
