Ordsall Community Arts has been doing some brilliant stuff in Ordsall for the past 25 years and this latest event is aimed at `lifting the lid' on some of the work it's been doing and the organisations it's been working with to reveal both Ordsall and Salford's creative talent.

On display are works by the `New Lowry', Joe Coffey, and top Lower Broughton artist Jo Carlon, plus art from Ordsall creators Leslie Holmes and Amber Sanchez. Community groups, like Women In Stitches, are also exhibiting and Gears+ is showcasing a special real BMW customised by local kids…

"Ordsall alone is buzzing with creative activity, and we wanted to showcase the fantastic work that local people are doing" says Iain Earle of Ordsall Community Arts and exhibition organiser "Part of the inspiration for the event was to feature an old BMW which was converted at Gears + by a group of young people from Ordsall.

"They are so proud of it!" he adds "They gutted it inside and out, re-moulded it and lined it with benches, and painted it. Its final destination will be in the new community garden at Ordsall Park this summer. This is your last chance to see it from underneath before it gets buried and used as a big plant pot…"

On Saturday 20th May there will be workshops and activities for children and families, free lunch at 1pm, drumming workshops and live music from two acoustic Salford bands, the Ratcatchers and the Beautiful Distractions.
