Quays Culture

Pioneers of outdoor arts and cultural events, Quays Culture delivers exhilarating, new multi-media arts and cultural events, combining the latest in digital and cutting edge technology with the vision of world-class artists throughout the year. Its work ranges from the intimate to the monumental, acting as a series of interventions and invitations to the public realm.

Seasonal events include two free annual festivals, artists commissions & residencies, talks & seminars, co-commissioning new artwork and pop-up events over the year.

We are supported by The Quays Partnership to bring exciting public events to the area. This funding helps to reinforce Salford Quays position as a destination for innovative cultural events and performances, and establish the place as a home for artists to make and show high quality work.
