20:20 Vision: An installation to celebrate 20 years of Start in Salford
Saturday 23 November 2013 to Sunday 23 March 2014
Start in Salford will be marking its 20th anniversary in 2013; in order to celebrate its success and the work achieved by its members, they have created a unique exhibition of their work over the years.
Start in Salford is a creative arts and wellbeing centre and its mission is to promote emotional wellbeing and recovery by providing creative arts-based activities and training opportunities for who are, or may be at risk of experiencing mental health difficulties or social exclusion.
A contemporary exhibition which includes projected artworks, wall graphics, interactives, member's personal journeys, film and music. This exhibition is as diverse, interesting and moving as the people that benefit from Start in Salford.
Salford Museum and Art Gallery have worked in partnership with Start over the years and we are delighted to be hosting their 20th anniversary celebratory exhibition.

Come and see the Pilkington's collection in all its glory in our North Gallery at Salford Museum and Art Gallery.
Salford Museum;'s Pilkington collection is the largest in the UK. It contains examples of almost every artist and most types of ware produced by the factory between 1900-1958 and the 1970s.
When the company unfortunately closed in June 2010 Salford Museum was able to acquire the Pilkington archive containing pattern books, notebooks and company documents. This important resource not only compliments the ceramic collection but also assists by placing it in its social history context.
