Partnership


We envisage a vibrant and sustainable creative ecology in which experimentation, collboration and culture are the raw materials for change-making with Salford’s people and in Salford’s places.

We envisage a vibrant and sustainable creative ecology in which experimentation, collaboration and culture are the raw materials for change-making with Salford’s people and in Salford’s places.

In shaping this strategy, Salford’s Culture and Place Partnership does not look at culture in a box. It interrogate intersections with other industries and strategies, needs and aspirations across the city. In taking a wider view of culture and its potential, the conversation changes. Economic resilience and technological advancement are essential for the future of the city. At the same time, we need to continue to make space to explore what makes us truly human: culture, art, community and creativity. Where ‘models of good practice’ to address Salford’s needs and aspirations are not fit for purpose, we must work across the partnership and the wider city to create and test new models. As a city of firsts, Salford is ready to take on this challenge.
