RETRACING SALFORD

Old Salford street maps, signs from the city's disappeared streets and loads of old photos from local families lining the walls. The Retracing Salford project is back at The Cornerstone until April 14th and launches this Saturday 11am-4pm with the whole team there to answer questions, display their archives and scan old family snaps that anyone can bring to add to the growing collection.

Included in the display are black and white and early colour photos from the Ainsworth family, originally from Hanky Park and Nansen Street; fifties photos from the Rigby family who lived in Lindsay Street, off Regent Road and sixties photos from the Wroe family who lived in Alfred Street in Lower Broughton until it was demolished in the 70s. There's top pics of old cars in the background as well as those long gone but never forgotten streets.

"It's an interactive exhibition of images and objects collected from people who lived in some of the Salford's now demolished terrace streets" says Lawrence Cassidy of ReTracing Salford "Salford's demolitions have fragmented many family and social networks. However, the exhibition aims to bring people together again to reflect on diverse aspects of community life.

"The Retracing Salford project is influenced by The District Six Museum in South Africa" he adds "It uses related objects to recapture community memories, such as family snaps, oral histories, street maps and street signs."

Anyone can bring photos from old streets down to the launch on Saturday, or throughout its run at The Cornerstone until April, or e-mail them to the online museum which can be found at www.streetsmuseum.co.uk

ReTracing Salford launches on Saturday 29th January at The Cornerstone's FunKey Day, a full day of free family entertainment to celebrate the handing over of the building's keys to the community by the Salford PCT. As well as the ReTracing Salford launch which is happening upstairs, there's stalls, quizzes, kids crafts, live bands and a treasure hunt going on all day 11am-4pm

ReTracing Salford runs until April 14th at The Langworthy Cornerstone, 451 Liverpool St (corner of Langworthy Rd/Liverpool St), Salford M6 5QQ

Star date: 15th October 2018

ARTISTS TO CHALLENGE HOUSING POLICIES WHILE LIVING IN LUXURY HOUSE

'You can't even stop your car to take in the breathtaking sterilization of the place...'

Last week, artists moved into a stunning Urban Splash house in the new Springfield Lane development as part of a year-long project called Tenancy in which they will explore 'what it's like to live in a city negotiating rapid change' and 'who is benefitting'.

The Springfield Lane development, being branded as in 'Manchester', has no affordable housing and avoided hundreds of thousands of pounds in planning fees. Can the artist project, actually sponsored by Tom Bloxham and Urban Splash, make a difference?
