Salford Rediscovered is a celebration sprawling across the Crescent, showcasing Rediscovering Salford's artists, stories & green spaces.
This June, the team behind the hugely successful Rediscovering Salford project, which took place across 2020-2022, are coming together to deliver a one-day event to celebrate the end of the extensive cultural programme of activity which connected and engaged with Salford’s green spaces.
Following the installation of The University of Salford’s new Chancellor, Salford Rediscovered, will take place from 4pm – 10pm on Thursday 16th June at various locations across Crescent.
There are over 20 workshops, interventions, installations and events taking place throughout the evening both indoors and out. Some of the highlights include; artist-led tours of The Storm Cone augmented reality
experience, a live workshop with visual artist Lowri Evans, a DIY Theatre performance on the Peel Parksteps, as well as brand-new exhibitions in the New Adelphi Atrium and a very special appearance from Cheddar Gorgeous as Madam Mort!
The Crescent Lawn will be home to a Food and Drink tent hosted by Grub MCR with a selection of delicious local street food to complement the live music and DJ’s playing throughout the evening. Salford Museum and Art Gallery will be staying open late on the day, with a last chance to see the You Belong Here exhibition alongside a sneak preview of the new, Salford Open exhibition.
This free event is an opportunity for the people of Salford to engage with green spaces and culture in their city. All are welcome.
