Welcome to the Culture in Trafford Website.
that this site will help to increase participation in
culture and help to improve the profile of Trafford by
attracting people to live, work and play in a Borough that
is vibrant and exciting.
The word culture means different things to everyone; it
conjures up mental images and pictures and everyone has
their own personal understanding and interpretation of the
word as well as cultural experiences and background. It is
often seen as a complexity of society characteristics and
distinctions such as faiths and beliefs, intellect and
emotions as well as social expressions and traditions.
Most of us think of culture as a creative form and
expression of common interests or activities that may make
up our cultural identity or way of life as individuals and
collectively in our area, region, nation or world.
It is acknowledged that there is a richness of cultural
provision in the Borough with institutions such as
Manchester United, Lancashire County Cricket Club or
Imperial War Museum. What many people might not know is
that Trafford has a wealth of creative talent, individuals
and groups ready to play their part in promoting culture
as well understanding the awareness of the cultural
opportunities available to its diverse communities.
By identifying key cultural resources, this website has
been established to encourage the wider community to
access the vast range of cultural activities taking place
in Trafford and beyond.
