Your support matters

Every donation will help Liverpool Biennial to support the artists and communities we work with, to commission ground-breaking public art works, to enable learning opportunities and to ensure we become a Biennial for Everybody.

Because of people like you we can make amazing things happen. Over the past 25 years we have supported the careers of over 380 UK based and international artists through artist development programmes and commissioning over 530 projects including 34 in Liverpool neighbourhoods. We have engaged local communities through innovative projects such as Mohamed Bourouissa’s Resilience Garden (2018) and Monster Chetwynd’s Dogsy Ma Bone (2016) and have received over 49 million visitors to Liverpool.

Liverpool Biennial is a registered charity (1073956) and we rely on the support from individuals, corporate supporters and Trusts and Foundations. We are immensely grateful to our core funders Arts Council England and Liverpool City Council and to all our supporters who help to continue our valuable work for Liverpool and its people.
