Liverpool Biennial commissions leading artists to work with young people and children from the city to create major new works. 

Marvin Gaye Chetwynd

For Liverpool Biennial 2016, artist Marvin Gaye Chetwynd was invited to make a new work with young people from Liverpool. Through a series of workshops and live performances with 34 children and 44 teenagers, she produced the film Dogsy Ma Bone, using the city as a backdrop to the action. It was presented at Cains Brewery and parts of the film were performed live during the Biennial opening weekend. In 2017, the film, live performances and a supporting education programme toured the UK, visiting venues such as Touchstones Rochdale and Tate Modern, London as part of the Tate Exchange programme.
