About us

Saltaire Inspired is an ambitious arts charity, creating quality contemporary arts events in unique settings.

We deliver three annual arts events in the World Heritage village of Saltaire, and work towards our vision to help Saltaire become an internationally recognised centre for the visual arts.

We create art and community events in the unique spaces of Saltaire and present exciting and challenging contemporary visual art in accessible settings, inspiring people of all ages and backgrounds to take part.

We use public buildings and private homes as venues in order to encourage and reach out to new audiences and communities, and to attract artists to exhibit and respond. We also provide creative learning experiences by offering free workshops and drop-in sessions on anything from film animation to den-building.

Our Events

We run three events annually:

Saltaire Arts Trail in May – featuring Open Village, Makers Fair and a host of creative activities

Contemporary Makers Fairs – in May and September

The Saltaire Living Advent Calendar – in December

We aim to produce really wonderful, high quality events and activities that are affordable to all, and in most cases free. Funds come from a mix of grants, sponsorship, advertising, fees and donations. Any profits from fundraising go to making our arts and community work better.

The values of Saltaire Inspired:

  • Quality, excellence and expertise
  • Innovation and uniqueness
  • Collaboration and partnership working
  • Learning and development for all
  • Inspirational and fun
  • Ethical and environmentally conscious

Thanks to our supporters

The events organised by Saltaire Inspired are only made possible by the support of both local and national businesses and organisations and funders.
