In the summer of 2023, visitors to Eccles discovered a vibrant Wild in Art trail celebrating the unique character and heritage of Eccles, which took over windows, walls and spaces in the town centre. The public art installation featured street art, paintings, murals, photography and pop up studios – all created by local artists and Eccles residents.
The event was part of a huge regeneration programme from Salford City Council. We were commissioned to work with local stakeholders to deliver a showcase of artwork, from striking installations to magnificent murals, powerful photography and stunning paintings, injecting life and colour into Eccles town centre.
Locals and visitors could pick up a trail map at Eccles Library, and various shops and cafes in Eccles Shopping Centre to explore the trail.
