Arts Development


About Arts Development

Arts development programmes are an important part of Salford Community Leisure’s offer.  Some great projects have been delivered in neighbourhoods, to offer inspiring opportunities for local people to benefit from participation alongside professional artists and arts companies.

We link into Greater Manchester, North West and national arts initiatives and organisations.  Current projects include the Little Hulton Arts Programme, as well as developing activities for Manchester Science Festival 2017.

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

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

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.
