Salt Road is an artist-led production partnership established in 2005 by artist co-directors Jaime Jackson and Dr Sally Payen with the aim of co-creating a series of emergent art programs that site social justice, climate awareness and ecology & climate anxiety at the forefront in the UK and internationally.

Our work:

1. Relational socially engaged and visual art journeys.
2. Focus climate change knowledge, resilience, adaption, via the mystery of the natural world, archives and latest international scientific research.
3. Artist led commissions and exhibition curation.
4. Community cohesiveness in intuitive co-productive art processes.
5. Artist development and mentoring.
6. Bridging art practice with the public, education, community and sustainability sectors.
