We have created an awesome event programme for autumn 2015. We are offering a series of workshops and exhibitions across the autumn months to anyone in Liverpool who takes interest in what we are offering. Introductory sessions on things such as; animation, calligraphy, bookbinding. The exhibition element are a continuation of the work we’ve been doing with our “knack exhibition” giving opportunities to artists to showcase work and provide selling opportunities in a non-traditional art settings that has a higher likelihood of views, and thus sales.
The aim of the series is to reach people from outside our immediate community. It’s our aspiration to advertise the programme is traditional and creative ways, to extend that reach. We want to use avenues like print media, local news and magazines as well as the social and online routes already in use.
We have brought together some very talented workshop facilitators. We spent a period of time collating all the application and meeting with the best ones we thought would fit with our aspiration and aims. We’ve worked in partnership with these people to develop a programme that will appeal and excite a broad range of people.
Our exhibitions, which will run alongside the workshops, will showcase work from talented creatives looking to shows a wide range of people their work.
