The GettaLife Project has grown out of the special musical celebration and call to be ‘for life’, its title, “Real life, Real Soul, Real Gospel” which was held at Manchester Cathedral to a packed audience on November 1st, 2008.
Although its first vision and impetus had the particular focus of helping young people involved in the gun culture of the inner city; the project which was registered as a charity with the Charity’s Commission in 2009, has now widened its aims to enable the development of artistic and craft skills for young adults from a variety of backgrounds and contexts, who have a passion and a love of a skill that can be trained to enable a future livelihood.
Our aim is to offer this gift of a skill that enables joy and self-respect: a life-long ability that is never lost. It is a way to get a life that has meaning and creative purpose for young adults seeking a right path for themselves and for those who may have had to re-consider after redundancy or unemployment a new way forward.
