Perceptions of Salford's prime regeneration areas are being exhibited in the foyer of the University's Maxwell Hall today (Friday) and tomorrow at the Broughton Family Fun Day in Albert Park.

Young people from Albert's in Broughton and Oliver's Youth Club in Whit Lane have come together to portray how it feels to be young and in Salford.

"We've been taking photos and basically telling what the community is all about" says Aran O'Mahoney from Albert's, who adds "We thought it was all right."

Meanwhile, Kerry Steadman from Oliver's Youth Club made a DVD, playing first what people might see as a stereotyped Salford kid, and then playing herself articulating her aspirations.

"We did the `good teenager/bad teenager' and it was just about the different ways that people can think of us" she says "First I did the part of a bad teenager and then I showed what I really wanted to do – go to college, go to University and have a good life and a good job. It was about trying to change people's perceptions. It was fun."

The film that Kerry made is being shown today at the University's Maxwell Hall and tomorrow at an outdoor cinema set up in the evening at Albert Park as part of the Broughton Family Fun Day. There's also exhibitions of photographs and portraits taken by the young people (on display in the green hut at Albert Park) plus a `word wall' showing words that are used in Salford but maybe not known outside…

"The project has worked amazingly well" says youth worker, Sarah Nelson "Kids from both Oliver's and Albert's have come together and have all come up with the same perceptions – that they are happy where they live, whether it be Whit Lane or Broughton. They were quite happy to get their views across that they're not bad kids and are quite keen to do right by their community."

The exhibition, called strangely, The Chemical and the Capricious, is part of nationwide multi-media arts project run by Kandu Arts and links in with similar projects in London, Wiltshire, Cornwall and Grimsby.

"It's quite a posh title and nobody really knows what it means but it's looking at perceptions of the world and how young people see themselves, and how people see them and the environment in which they live" says Donna Lee from Kandu Arts.

"There's also a sense of place, looking at the contrast between the old Salford and the regenerated Salford and what the young people see as a nice place to live" she adds "We've also contrasted old and new, and taken photos at both the Victorian street at Salford Museum and Poundland in the Precinct."

The exhibition contains loads of powerful images of Salford and shows the talent of our young people to tell their own stories and show their experiences in words, film and with great photography…

PEPPA PIG COMMUNISM GRAFFITI GOES SUBVERSIVE IN SALFORD

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
