Artistic Opportunities


Creation of an outdoor digital interactive artwork

For presentation during Lightwaves 2018 (Salford Quays, United Kingdom) & Quartier des Spectacles (Montreal, Canada)

Deadline for submissions: 23 April 2018 (10:00 Montreal / 15:00 United Kingdom)

Creators and artists working in any discipline and residing in Quebec (Canada) or in the United Kingdom are invited to propose an outdoor digital interactive installation. The proposal selected for production will be consistent with certain elements of artistic direction common to the two organisations: the desire to disrupt people’s everyday routines with bold, astonishing and thought-provoking works that capture the viewer’s imagination. For full details, view the Open call for submissions.



We have many ways for aspiring and established artists to realise and show their work at Salford Quays as part of Quays Culture’s annual programme of events. Please check back for specific opportunities in the future. If you are an arts practitioner with an idea of how you could contribute to our programme, please get in touch.
