Create Salford festival showcases the best work from the University of Salford’s School of Arts and Media students, presenting a series of events to inspire and encourage creative minds.
The 2016 event spanned 41 days and featured a diverse programme of performances, exhibitions and literary recitals, as well as industry networking and professional development opportunities.
With the majority of events free to attend, the festival drew its audience from a diverse mix of students and their families, residents, cultural industry representatives and potential future employers.
Key to the success of this year’s festival was cultivating new and existing relationships with a number of creative industry partners, supporters and venues, including Artworks Atelier, the Daily Telegraph and Imperial War Museum North. Meanwhile sponsorship for the inaugural Student Awards ceremony was provided by C&O Wines, Hub Fire & Security Systems and Asian Media Awards.
