In the long gentle (we hope) May evening the Institute of Urban Dreaming will take CG Associates members on a walking tour from Castlefield Gallery into the rapidly changing landscape of Salford; gone is the open land to the east of Regent Road, now being rapidly transformed into a landscape of high new buildings. Walk and talk with the Institute of Urban Dreaming for a discussion about regeneration, the changing city and how artists can avoid being complicit in gentrification.
28 April 2017 — 11 June 2017
