Creative Industries Trafford

Creative Industries Trafford (CIT) was established in 2005 and is based at Waterside Arts Centre in Sale, south Manchester.

The project’s objectives are to increase the productivity and artistic quality of the creative sector and to improve business survival rates. This is done through training workshops, exhibition and selling opportunities, networking events and masterclasses from leading artists across a number of fields.

CIT also facilitates a visual artists’ network and works in conjunction with Waterside’s exhibitions team to support visual artists, designers and craftmakers. We work regularly with Castlefield Gallery to deliver portfolio sessions for visual artists. CIT runs writers’ development events for those working in print and on TV. The programme also offers a range of business and marketing support events for all creative workers.

Creative Industries Trafford is supported by Trafford Council and Arts Council England. We support fair fees and copyright retention for artists.
