The University of Salford Art Collection presents Craig Easton: Is Anybody Listening? a touring exhibition at galleries across the Northwest. Craig Easton: Is Anybody Listening? is supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, showcasing two award-winning series of photographs, alongside an engagement programme for young people called Our Time, Our Place.

A long-time advocate for authentically representing communities in the North, Easton’s exhibition seeks to challenge stereotypes and raise aspirations of young people within the region. 

Craig Easton: Is Anybody Listening? is touring across four locations, Salford, Blackpool, Liverpool and Birkenhead.  The engagement programme, Our Time, Our Place, which also includes Blackburn, aims to empower young people to discuss current issues, explore their own history, and share it through pathways in photography and associated practices. 

The touring exhibition has already been hosted at Open Eye Gallery (12 Jan – 26 Feb 2023) and LeftCoast at Blackpool School of Arts (11 Apr – 31 May 2023), it will now be exhibited at University of Salford Art Collection at New Adelphi (11 Sept – 22 Dec 2023) and Williamson Art Gallery and Museum (25 Jan – 30 March 2024).
