Made of Stars at The Black-E, City Centre 11 — 20 October 2022 Entrance is free — Visit now

Taking place in a 20-foot pyramid, Made Of Stars is an immersive journey happening in the heart of Liverpool this autumn.

Created by an ensemble of local artists who have sought refuge in Liverpool, the striking piece explores humanity in the modern world. Visitors to the artwork will encounter an empowering and sensory experience that draws on the courageous stories of 14 refugee artists.  Exploring identity, individuality, belonging and community, featured artists include Iranian filmmaker Elia Sadeqi, Jaime Perez Sandoval who is a radio presenter from El Salvador, Mudaser Akbari, a young Afghan boxer and Monira Whadat, an Afghan seamstress.

Led by TurnTable Theatre, the project is a result of collaborations between Liverpool-based artist and architect Noel Urbain, multi-disciplinary movement director and choreographer Grace Goulding and the influential and visionary photographer Nick Knight. The installation will also feature a collection of portraits of the artistic team, taken by Nick Knight – a wider ambition of the project to redefine what it means to be a refugee in Britain today.

You can also experience Made of Stars at Take Over 2022, a free festival of events across Knowsley and St Helens, and then Liverpool Lighthouse later in November.
