The Overspill Project ran for 18 months from January 2019.

Cartwheel Arts secured unding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to collect and share memories and stories of the movement of people from Manchester’s slums to the newly built overspill estates in the 1950’s and 1960’s.

Cartwheel Arts and Small Things Creative Projects ran eight dementia friendly workshops to celebrate stories inspired by the area.

This downloadable resource provides a step by step guide of the process for anyone wanting to try the session in their own settings.

This resource is also available as a download from our project website - https://overspillmcr.org/resources/
