Get It Done is a community arts organisation based in Manchester and London. Get It Done works directly with communities to facilitate creative projects, workshops and events to create measurable social change, and upskills young people with the tools to lead impactful projects themselves and professionalise their creative practices.
Born in 2017 out of a frustration at a lack of creative opportunities in Manchester, and how young people were being left out of the important conversations being had around the city, Get It Done was formed on an ethos of collaboration, innovation and participation, with a mission to make grassroots tools for creative arts accessible to everyone, to start their own thing, to get it done.
Since 2017, we have worked with a vast range of partners to deliver impactful creative social projects; including producing a two-year creative campaign platforming the experiences of people using foodbanks with Manchester Central Foodbank, running critical thinking programmes for young people with diverse experiences at Manchester Art Gallery and co-ordinating arts festivals filled with performances, live art, workshops and talks. We have a track record of enabling young people and communities to thrive.
For all of her work managing Get It Done, Mimi Dearing was made a finalist for the Young Creative of the Year at the Manchester Culture Awards 2019.
Who's here? Get It Done is led by Mimi Dearing, supported by Sofia Hadjiosif (Communications Assistant) and Jessie Farnsworth (Projects Assistant). Over the years Get It Done has included an incredible host of artists and thinkers, including our two co-founders Georgina Fox and Ruby Kerr, and Imogen Ellerby-Sansom, Ben Prideaux and Maisie Smith.
We are constantly on the look out for new creatives and organisations to collaborate with - particularly now based in London.
