Paradise Works is an artist run initiative providing studios & project space to a community of proactive, intergenerational, contemporary artists. Established in April 2017, Paradise Works is currently home to 28 artists working across sculpture, installation, painting, drawing, design, film, audio, performance, photography & curation.
Our outlook is local, national and international, and we believe artists hold a vital role in the development of a vibrant and diverse city. Paradise Works aims to create a sustainable urban model for artist-led activity in the growing arts ecology across the Salford & Manchester border.
Our project space hosts a critically engaged programme of curated exhibitions, residencies, screenings and events for emerging, mid-career and established artists. We enable artists to establish sustainable creative practices by providing space to make and share their work, stimulating new perceptions and connecting with the people who live, work in, or visit the city.
Paradise Works is a not for profit Community Interest Company committed to supporting artistic sustainability whilst working collaboratively to support cultural growth across Salford and Manchester.
