Quays Culture is the artistic team behind the large-scale art events at the Salford Quays and MediaCityUK location. The programme includes free public art exhibitions and performances, talks and workshops throughout the year across the public spaces. Inspired by our surroundings, there is a focus on technology, creativity and digital innovation, including the UK's largest Digital Light Festival every December.
