A Jo Cox Foundation Network Event

The Great Get Together 2024 

The Great Get Together (21-23 June 2024) is the UK’s annual celebration of everything that unites our communities, inspired by Jo Cox’s belief that we have more in common than that which divides us. Creatives Now will be hosting a Great Get Together on Sunday 23 June.

Mission

'While we celebrate our diversity, what surprises me time and time again is that we are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us' Jo Cox

Pitch into our project dedicated to exploring community cohesion and connection within Bolton and the Greater Manchester region. Residents are invited to participate in three key ways: apply to our Greater Manchester Biodiversity Ring Open Art Exhibition 'A Million Small Acts,' contribute to our Zine Library with themes 'My Bolton, My Home' or 'My Region, My Home,' and come along to connect and engage on Sunday, 23 June. Let's celebrate what unites us and strengthen our community bonds!
