About Create Salford

Create Salford celebrates the work of the final-year students in the School of Arts and Media at the University of Salford. Now in its 6th year, the festival has grown from strength to strength, showcasing the diverse range of talent across the school.

The festival offers a diverse programme of performances, exhibitions, film screenings, debates, literary recitals, as well as industry networking and professional development opportunities. The majority of events are free and we welcome audiences from across the university, local community and industry.

Take a look at the Festival Schedule to keep up to date with events, hosted at a range of venues across the University and Greater Manchester, including our flagship arts hub New Adelphi, MediaCityUK and the unique Hotel Football.

The events, individually and collectively, offer a unique insight into the boundless creative and cultural role that the 4,000 students at Salford’s School of Arts & Media and over 250 staff play in promoting, instigating and supporting arts and culture in Salford and Greater Manchester.

Each year, the festival is supported by, and delivered in partnership with, a number of key creative industry organisations. Previously, these have included Artworks Atelier, The Daily Telegraph, HOME, Imperial War Museum North, Islington Mill and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

School of Arts and Media

At the School of Arts and Media, we embrace difference. We value the power of diversity to help us see and understand the world around us from new perspectives and to challenge our ways of thinking about the issues we face in our daily lives - from the deeply personal to the intensely political.

The only institution to have a campus at MediaCityUK, as well as our main campus at Peel Park, we offer industry-focussed courses and opportunities for collaboration, both within the University, and with external professional organisations.

For more information on the school, including courses available to study, please visit the school pages on our website.
