Hosted by The British Council in partnership with Liverpool Biennial and FACT

This event will consider the recent shifts and changes to the ways in which arts and culture are encountered in public and private spaces by day and by night, and in turn, how arts and culture are shaping the public realm and identities of cities. The programme includes:

– The launch of Where Strangers Meet, a publication commissioned by the British Council with essays by artists, commentators and thought-leaders in this field.

– Liverpool Biennial: 20 years of impact on the city of Liverpool – an overview of the role of the Biennial in the transformation of the city by Director Sally Tallant.

– A conversation about the making of Resilience Garden, one of the major works at this year’s Liverpool Biennial.

– Art, cities and encounters in public and private space – a panel discussion chaired by publication editor Claire Doherty with Lynn Froggett, Dave Haslam, Paul Heritage and Nina Edge.

As part of the event, guests will also have the option to experience Aurora. Aurora is an immersive experience made for the iconic Toxteth Reservoir in Liverpool, exploring the theme of water and the future. Tickets are limited and need to be booked specially via the Eventbrite link.
