DIY common is a new project by the artist collective, Public Works, which looks to bring collective and community making to Cheetham Hill using Cheetham Park’s existing natural resources whilst proposing to grow new ones to allow diversity of interest. The project will offer different expertise to the local community for free so they can continue to use the park in a productive way as a communal resource for building their community.
