Press Release: 20:20 Vision: An installation to celebrate 20 years of Start in Salford
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.
Founder and CEO at Start in Salford:
We are all so excited about our new exhibition; it is groundbreaking. Each element is special and is a testament to all the members, volunteers and staff at Start. I am so proud to be celebrating such a landmark anniversary alongside those who have supported the charity over the last 20 years. Here's to the next 20 years!
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. This exhibition is on display from Saturday 23 November 2013 to Sunday 23 March 2014.

In 1849, Salford City Council sanctioned the use of Lark Hill Place as an educational site and planned to turn the mansion into a public museum and library.
Today, Salford Museum and Art Gallery presents an exciting programme of permanent displays and changing contemporary exhibitions together with a range of events and activities guaranteed to inspire.
Ordsall Hall - Salford's Grade 1 listed Tudor manor house - was first recorded in 1177. Since then, it has been home to medieval gentry, Tudor nobility, Catholics loyal to the crown, butchers, farmers, an Earl, an artist, priests, scout troops, mill workers, cows and several ghosts!
Today, it is an engaging heritage site open to visitors 5 days a week throughout the year. Surrounded by landscaped grounds, it boasts hands on exhibitions, immersive room settings and a small cafe.
