Saltaire Arts Trail

The Saltaire Arts Trail is a community arts event held annually in May.

The aim of the Saltaire Arts Trial (SAT) is to support the visual arts in and around Saltaire, celebrating the village’s rich heritage, and offering opportunities to both emerging and established artists. We want to demonstrate the value of creativity through education and to engage the diverse communities within Bradford, making the visual arts accessible to all. Heritage, community, learning and cultural partnerships are central to the ethos of the event.

The next Saltaire Arts Trail will be on the weekend the late May bank holiday, 23th – 25th May 2015. To keep in touch with how to apply, what’s planned, when to visit, and more, join our mailing list or like us on Facebook (Saltaire Inspired) and follow us Twitter (@SaltaireArt)
