Two artists examine the importance of Salford’s redbrick terraced streets. Leslie Holmes uses the gym floor to list the lives of over 400 families from Rudman Street, one of the last surviving streets of the Docks Estate. Lawrence Cassidy’s installation of storage containers wrapped with family photos and home movies from the 1960s retraces a street in Broughton.

Over three weekends June 16/17, 23/24, 30/1 12 – 4pm
