Social Works? Is a social art festival hosted in partnership between AxisWeb and Manchester Metropolitan University. The event will involve artist-run stalls, a live publication process, a programme of talks and the chance to sign up for a one-to-one with commissioners. Social Works?

- Exchange - A space for discourse and reflection.
- Profile - A space devoted to the celebration of artists and their projects.
- Resources - A space for learning and sharing best practice.
