Tim France

Director – Performance, Music, English and Dance / Salford School of Arts, Media and Creative Technology

Tim says “I love listening to and watching the work students create during their studies – it’s a very happy place for me. Overseeing the judging of the nominations for the Create Student Awards is a special time and the perfect opportunity to see such distinctive, talented work. The supporting statements from their nominators were very moving and inspiring; I got to understand about each student and their journey through their time here at Salford. There are some amazing stories here of challenge and adversity, and all can be proud of their successes. I congratulate you all and wish you the best of fortunes for the future.”
