A Creative Community at the Bluecoat in Liverpool

A Creative Community at Bluecoat, City Centre 8 September — 31 October 2021 Entrance is free — Visit now

The Bluecoat in Liverpool has been a home for working artists for over 100 years. From the first group of artists who occupied the former school building in 1907, through to the present day, this ‘creative community’ remains at the heart of the Bluecoat, with some 20 artists and creatives occupying studios today. A Creative Community will tell the story of these artists through material drawn from the art centre’s extensive archive.

As well as revealing the heritage of artists working in the building, the display will also feature the Bluecoat’s ‘extended family’ of artists-in-residence and printmaking studios, and a new series of photos commissioned from current occupier Sophie Traynor provides an opportunity for the public to get to know the current cohort of creatives.
