Manchester Weekender Tour of Salford. 2nd October 3-6pm

I’ll be leading a walk around the arty parts of Salford as part of Contemporary Cartography’s Urban Wandering tours in association with The Whitworth Art Gallery this Saturday 2nd October. This is from the Whitworth site.

3.00-6.00pm

River Irwell Tour **Starting at The People’s History Museum** Meeting at the People’s History Museum before crossing the river Irwell to explore the spaces of Salford. Led by Manchester artist Louise Woodcock, former member of Kraak gallery, the tour group will be introduced to the different spaces of Manchester Modernist Society – a duo that work to promote the architectural history and landscape of Greater Manchester, Hotbed Press, a print studio that runs a number of courses in screen printing, etching and book binding and Islington Mill Studios and Gallery. Islington Mill is a large studio complex with a gallery and music venue. Having been closed due to a redevelopment project the 1st of October sees the reopening of the building with a lively programme of events. A number of artists are based at the milll including the tour guide Louise, who will give an introduction to the different studios and spaces of the building. Also at the mill is the print collective One69a. One69a will introduce the tour group to their recently opened print studio and the range of projects they are currently undertaking. On leaving the Mill the tour group will seek out some of the live music events occurring as part of unconvention music festival, stopping off at Salford Central Station a regular space for artist’s interventions and events, before finishing the tour in art pub The Kings Arms. With studios upstairs, a music venue and a programme of craft activities the Kings Arms is a unique and friendly venue for any kind of refreshment and the perfect end to a Salford tour.
