Our events sit at the heart of Salford Quays, the home of MediaCityUK, and our programme of art reflects the diverse and world-class creativity here in Salford.
Take a look at this short film – Salford Quays: A Visitor Guide to get a feel for what else The Quays has to offer:
Collaboration is at the heart of what we do, whether with cultural partnerships, community activity, artistic talent development or our governance. To make the very best in art that has digital technology at its centre requires specialisms and knowledge. In five years we have created some truly amazing art experiences and become leaders in our own right. We are always interested to hear from new partners.
We participate in many formal cultural partnerships and networks including the UK’s Lighting Up the North, British Council’s Quebec-UK Connections scheme, the Global Cultural Districts Network (GCDN). Individual cultural partnering includes relationships with Light Night, Blackpool Illuminations, V&A, Watershed, Leeds Light Night, Amsterdam Light Festival, Signal Festival Prague, Glow Festival Eindhoven, Baltic Light Chain and Montreal’s Quartiers Des Spectacles.
“Quays Culture is without doubt one of the great success stories of The Quays redevelopment. The calibre of work is outstanding – presenting only the best digital commissions and installations available on the international circuit. This year has been no exception – with both Lightwaves and Broken proving highlights of the city-region’s cultural calendar.” Julia Fawcett OBE, Chief Executive, The Lowry
