Welcome to the new home of Sounds from the Other City, Fat Out and the Samarbeta Music Residencies.

Bringing together the decades worth of creative endeavour and good times that have made these platforms possible, From the Other is here to celebrate and champion the ‘other’. Have a look at our home page to see some of the recent projects we’ve worked on.

Our roots are in ‘the other city’: Salford, where we form part of a close knit and ever evolving creative community. We are lucky enough to call some of our region’s most recognisable institutions as friends and partners. Together it forms a formidable mix of resource and skills that can take any idea from far to fetched.

For us, the most exciting and creative moments often ride in from the outskirts. An energy that can turn a space into a place, a sound into a show, an idea into an experience. It’s infectious. Who wouldn’t want to be around that every day?

If you want to collaborate or have a project you think we could work together on, then get in touch on the contact form.

We work in a spirit of ︎︎︎
