Exploring Liverpool’s Independent Art Spaces
I have been working with a number of artists, writers and graphic designers, who all came to work together through Liverpool artist network (LAN), to produce a free newspaper detailing the stories and the spaces of Liverpool’s independent art scene. The paper aims to represent the ‘hidden gems’ of city, the small and not small artist-led studios, independent galleries, collectives, spaces and organisations, sharing their histories, their stories and existence. With the number of talented artists that are brought into the city with each Biennale, we wanted to show both the people of the city and its visitors, what the city already has to offer.
Hidden gems was officially launched at the Hidden Gems Launch party on Tuesday 19th July 2016, at the Pen Factory, Liverpool. It gave us a chance to thank all the sponsors and people who funded and supported the project, as well as giving a chance for people to meet the hidden gems team and pick up a copy of the paper.
The hidden gem paper can be found in this years biennial bag 2016, or for free in coffee shops, galleries and independent business throughout Liverpool orAlternatively, click on the link for online version of hidden gems.
Articles from the paper will paper will also be published on artinliverpool.com.
Hidden Gems was made possible thanks a crowd funding campaign, which received an incredible response, Thank you, and by the sponsorship of local independent businesses, liverpool’s other hidden and no so hidden gems:
Rennies Arts and Crafts
R. Jackson and Sons
