Who we are
Creativity for all through technology.
Lets Go Global are a creative technology & arts organisation based in MediaCityUK, Salford, Manchester.
Set up in 2003, we’ve evolved from an arts-led, internet TV channel, to a dynamic media & arts organisation offering ideas, training, creative technology workshops, video production (commercial & community), live broadcasting, project management, and we work in partnership with people to improve their digital knowledge, skills, understanding, and experience.
This site tells you more about what Lets Go Global can do for you. Use the menu above to explore our services, and how you can get involved.
We have over ten year’s experience of working in community settings across Greater Manchester, for example our All About Us project connected people digitally & socially to create work themed around London 2012 & the Cultural Olympiad.
Our approach to working with communities is guided by their own interests and visions, and we have a particular passion for engaging with and involving hard to reach groups. We can provide projects that inspire people to take part in digital work with access to professional artists, ICT & video production resources, and we have access to a live broadcast studio based at the University of Salford, MediaCityUK.
We’re ideally placed to offer experienced and innovative project management; we have a dedicated team of professionals and have strong relationships with a number of local artists & media professionals to help us deliver work. We very much like to work in collaboration with people to mange work so that projects are diverse, interesting, and fun. Lets Go Global are always up for new challenges too, which continue to develop and stretch our own skills & imaginations
