Salford shortlisted for THREE Heist Awards

We are thrilled to announce that our project, “Is Anybody Listening? Our Time, Our Place,” has been shortlisted for the Best Community/Business Engagement Campaign or Initiative at the esteemed Heist Awards. This nomination is a testament to the impactful work being done through this initiative.

The Heist Awards, have a long history of highlighting innovative and effective campaigns across the sector. They celebrate projects that make significant contributions to community engagement, student recruitment, and overall brand building in higher education​​.

“Is Anybody Listening? Our Time, Our Place” showcases the work of UoS alumnus Craig Easton, featuring a touring exhibition that explores heritage through powerful photography. Funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, this project expands on Craig’s exhibition by incorporating a community engagement programme. This programme empowers young people to explore and understand their heritage, appreciate its value, and learn how to preserve and share it through the art of photography.

This initiative stands out in its category for its creative approach to engaging the community and its success in building a deeper connection between young people and their cultural heritage.

We are incredibly proud of this achievement and extend our thanks to everyone involved in making this project a success.
