* Bluecoat is an inclusive arts centre in the heart of Liverpool, offering a year-round programme of exhibitions and a range of music, dance, literature, live art and heritage activities and events.
As custodians of an historic building, which marked its 300-year anniversary in 2017, they are also home to around thirty artists, collectives, arts organisations and craftspeople.
As the UK's first arts centre, they have a rich artistic heritage. Their ambition is to be an artists’ hub for the North, increasing the visibility of and opportunities for the region’s artists, and internationally recognised for their residency and exchange programmes.
They want to develop new approaches to audience development, expanding opportunities in the arts for all and reaching those who would otherwise face barriers to involvement in the arts.
They want to showcase Bluecoat’s distinctive building, its history and deep relationship with Liverpool, making it a compelling venue for visitors to experience these narratives and their resonances in the present.
