Work starts this week on a set of tourism posters promoting South Liverpool – looking at some of it’s iconic buildings and interesting views. Basing the artwork on old fashioned travel posters from the 1920′s the works will also be translated into Luggage stickers that will be freely available form the airport to SHARE with anyone as a reminder of home or a keepsake of a visit.
We’ll post work in progress with a view to the pieces being complete by the end of this month and on display in March.
South Liverpool provides the start point for many a visitors journey to Liverpool – whether it’s via the roads in from the East, Parkway station in Garston or the Airport in Speke – but it’s often bypassed for the city centre.
This years Four Corners wishes to focus on what South Liverpool has to offer and to SHARE it with as wide an audience as possible! A lot of what is going on in the area will be news to many of the local residents, least of all liverpool and the rest of the visiting population so we are going to use one of the most public of devices for promotion – public transport!
A range of activities have started happening across South Liverpool with community groups and schools the results of these will be publicly displayed on Bus stops, Buses and at the Airport during March. We’re finalizing which routes and stops work will be available at so keep checking here for the first preview.
We’re also targeting other places where people wait and as the projects objectives are the PCT’s 5 Ways to Wellbeing we will also be active in some Health Center Waiting Rooms.
We’ll also start to post the activities taking place – but it’s not all boxed off! You can still take part. We are always looking for groups to get involved so get in touch – Contact Andrew
Four Corners is an annual Community Arts Project supported and funded by Liverpool City Council and the Primary Care trust. For 2012 the project is entitled ‘A Shared Place’ and will take place across South Liverpool during January, February and March with activity being coordinated by Liverpool John Moores University’s Art & Design POD.
The intention of the project is to engage neighbourhoods in the 5 Ways to Wellbeing (Connect/Be Active/Take Notice/Keep Learning/Give) and for their experiences to be SHARED in a public exhibition across the region via public transport. Work will be displayed on buses and bus stops as well as the Airport and other key sites such as health centers.
Look out for creative projects, gardening, improv, comedy, personal histories, photography and some interesting public art pieces in the area and visit this website for updates on progress.
