For this site a partnership was formed including Preston City Council, University of Central Lancashire Events Team and Engagement Team, Lancashire Encounter and Strive 2 Thrive Lancashire CIC to create a five week long programme. The MET's flexible space enabled a wide range of events to be produced.  This included productions for different audiences: local communities, students, and culture seekers, as well as becoming a meeting place for community groups across Preston.  

Partners& Funders: Preston City Council, University of Central Lancashire, Strive 2 Thrive Lancashire CIC.
