About Arts Development

The arts development team is an integral part of Salford Community Leisure and assists Salford City Council and other agencies and partners with the delivery of high quality art activities.

We work with our partners to offer inspiring and developmental opportunities for local people to benefit from participation alongside professional artists and arts companies.

We link with Greater Manchester, North West and national arts initatives and organisations. Current projects include the Eccles Arts Programme, as well as developing activities for the national Fun Palaces campaign.

Recent funders and commissioners include Community Committees in Salford, Arts Council England; North West, Greater Manchester Strategic Arts Fund, Salford Primary Care Trust, Salford Clinical Commissioning Group, Neighbourhood Renewal Fund, Property Developers and Housing Associations.

We advise professional artists and voluntary and community organisations that want to develop and commission high quality arts activities which improve the quality of life for people living in Salford.

Last year over 7,000 people engaged with a programme of arts outreach work.

We work with our partners to offer inspiring and developmental opportunities for local people.
