Liverpool Biennial 2016 welcomes all school pupils to experience international art across Liverpool’s public spaces, galleries and unused spaces this summer and autumn term.

For the first time, children have worked together with artists to present interactive exhibitions, projects and publications specifically for young audiences. Find out more about the full programme.

Teachers' Private Preview 

Monday 12 September / 4.15–6.30 / Studio School, 41 Greenland Street, Liverpool L1 0BS

Join us at our Private View to experience a detailed presentation from our Education Curator, Polly Brannan, who will explain the thinking behind the themes and works of the Biennial and how these can be used inside your classroom. We will then begin a bespoke guided tour of Cains Brewery, with a complimentary glass of wine. This will give you a comprehensive knowledge of the festival to assist you in delivering inside the classroom and on your tour.

School Tours

We can offer bespoke tours with mediators, who will make sure you make the most of your visit, guiding the children and young people on the day and providing them with useful information and resources to keep them busy. Personalised visits with curators can also be organised for colleges and universities upon request.
