In Salford we believe that health and wellbeing can be improved by connecting with culture, creativity and heritage.

Creativity includes everything from music and dancing, to reading and art, and gardening and cooking. Anything creative that makes us feel good is enriching our creative health.

When we visit a museum, art gallery, library or theatre we’re also connecting with culture. If you’re researching your local history you’re connecting to your heritage.

Our goal is to make sure more people in Salford have access to these creative activities, ideas and places. We want to talk to local people about what other opportunities they’d like to see in the city. And we’d like to explore the impact of creativity on making us all feel better.
