We have spent the last 20 years creating community artworks with communities across Merseyside and beyond, and supporting emerging artists to develop their creative practice and develop their business or social enterprise. Our current premises are bursting at the seams and we know there is a massive need for further support. Our approach does more than simply support organisations to grow, it creates a cluster of complementary creative practitioners and infrastructure services that promote innovation and create a place for creative industries and social enterprise to thrive.
