Picture Gallery: Days Like These, The Lowry, Salford
It’s been another tough week for the arts. But there’s a glimmer of light with some of of the UK’s most loved venues beginning to re-open (at a safe and social distance, of course). In Salford, The Lowry is set to open its galleries at weekends from November 1 with a new permanent L.S. Lowry collection and new exhibition Days Like These.
Days Like These features paintings, photographs, films and poetry contributed by some of the 245,000 residents of Salford, from empty streets and the joy of reuniting, to the impact on frontline workers and the challenges of being alone. Contributions are still being accepted. More information about how to submit your work can be found here.

Both exhibitions are free of charge and will be open 11am – 4pm.

“The need for us is still there.” At 28, Junior Akinola is the first person under 30 to chair a board of a major performing arts venue in the UK. But that didn't stop Manchester's Contact Theatre from hiring him. northernsoul.me.uk/the-need-f… @cparkwriter @Jr_JT3 @ContactMcr pic.twitter.com/tobyXTPpOc
