Manchester Arts Sustainability Team (MAST) is a network of 27 arts and cultural organisations based in Manchester who aim to work together to reduce their environmental impacts and foster a collaborative learning ethos which unites art forms, organisations, voluntary, and civic bodies in a shared commitment to a sustainable and equitable future.


Through partnership with Julies Bicycle MAST has been able to share ideas, learning and best practice while identifying opportunities for cost savings and building relationships with their funders, city, and audiences. This has facilitated MAST to position it’s network, and the wider culture sector, as a key player in achieving Manchester’s ambition of becoming a zero-carbon city by 2050.
