The Invisible Wind Factory, Carlton Street, Liverpool – Visit Now

Invisible Wind factory is a cavernous space from the good people behind the Kazimier, itself one of the city’s favourite independent hangouts, IWF is a separate yet parallel artistic endeavor. “In essence, it’s an artist-driven space and production company,” reveals team member Liam Naughton, “combining disciplines in design, electronics, lighting and audio production, wood and metal construction, all woven together to create something unique.”

Set in an actual former factory on the historic docklands of the River Mersey, Invisible Wind Factory can be found roughly halfway between the suitably windswept Albert Dock tourist attraction and the largely undeveloped Huskisson Dock, highlighting an interesting conflict in Liverpool between the derelict and the gentrified.

In fact, the new venue could be seen as a rather political move, considering threats to the Kazimier’s future in Wolstenholme Square. Well-loved creative hub and neighbour MelloMello closed its doors for good a couple of years since due to high business rates, and under the umbrella of proposed redevelopment by the square’s owners Hope Street Properties Ltd.

As for Invisible Wind Factory, you can look forward to more industrial-scale spectacles; the team are keen to keep future events “fairly mysterious”, so watch out for hints and updates over social media.
