About

Manchester > Greater For Creative, Digital And Tech Learning

Whether it’s a free coding activity in Ashton, a graphic design boot camp in the Northern Quarter, or a ‘build your own app competition in Stockport’ you’ll find out about it all through #MCRGreater/www.mcrgreater.co.uk

The campaign is promoted to schools, colleges, universities, apprentices, new entrants and new entrepreneurs on an ongoing basis.

#MCRGreater will provide an easily searchable resource to assist the promotion of events, supported by organisations including BBC, ITV and Manchester City Council.

The design is made up of the skylines of the ten boroughs that make up Greater Manchester and the branding is not led by any one organisation or employer.

The ambition is to support making Manchester Greater for Creative, Digital and Tech.
