Free Entry Preview and Auction – Friday 8th November 6-9pm

In November Stretford Arts Collective (SAC32) will host its 4th arts exhibition in celebration of local artists, creators and makers. The exhibition of work across all art-forms and media will be held at Stretford Public Hall – and more of the stunning spaces within our building will be available to house the exhibition after major refurbishment work. There is also the potential of expanding our show to the newly opened Stretford Foodhall. We are very excited about this potential collaboration and your work may be selected to exhibit there. Whilst priority will be given to resident artists from local neighbourhoods, submissions are welcomed from the wider Greater Manchester area. Our exhibitions are a wonderful way for local artists to show and sell their work to the public and an opportunity to celebrate and bri ng together our strong, diverse and inclusive communities. Consideration will be given to a wide range of art-forms including film, photography, installation, musical pieces, written word, performance pieces, paintings, drawing and sculpture. At SAC32 we would like to promote diversity of all kinds within the arts and welcome submissions from artists of all cultural backgrounds within Manchester and especially the Stretford area
