Ambient Life is working with Touchstones Creative Writing Group to help them raise their profile with this website which is providing a showcase for their work as well as attracting new members and raising awareness of local arts events in and around Rochdale. The web site has been designed from the ground up so that the group can update it with their latest work, news and events, ensuring that it is always fresh and current.

This project is providing a fantastic opportunity to encourage reading, writing and the performing arts, whilst raising the profile of Rochdale as an important centre for the arts. Ambient Life is keen to work with other arts organisations on similar types of projects.
