Salt road is an artist-led organisation, working in the public and community sector searching out meta-narratives found in social movements, history, sustainability and nature; and create linkages between things to create unusual open pathways for partnership working and commissioning.
We specialise in participatory practice engaging communities in digital environmental projects that engage people, communities, and organisations to grow and survive by learning about natural models of sustainability, biodiversity, and process based biomimicry.
We produce public programs including exhibitions of contemporary art, relational workshops with communities, talks and events to encourage critical and creative engagement through visual art-making.
We work with artists, galleries, museums, charities, government bodies and academic partners to respond to archives, buildings and places to make new work and develop digital technologies.
‘And what she saw there was a pattern, she was to explain, a pattern forged by the creative ‘look’ that artists posses as they scan the chaotic rubble of ordinary appearances and, through an extraordinary act of selective seeing, manage to extract a series of intervals, of harmonic relationships between darks and lights, an intuition of that organic intermeshing to which could be affixed the term unity’.
