Bringing the community together and expressing the outcomes through art, is something of which the people of Liverpool do so well. In FACT’s latest exhibition ‘Knowledge Lives Everywhere’ community projects and programmes such as Freehand and have worked in unison with artists such as Nina Edge to bring together an exciting opportunity of interaction and exploration with the general public.

\r\n

Often, a family of different age groups can enter an art gallery or museum and what is on offer is not always appealing to all of the different age groups within that group of people. With Knowledge Lives Everywhere there has been an exhibition created to appeal to both young children (see egg races in ground floor Gallery 1 – ‘The Social Playground’) to a transformed media room downstairs equipped with a typewriter and old chairs to attract adults.

\r\n

Of course what is also the unique appeal for FACT is that added extra enjoyment of extending your stay to grab lunch in the Café or a drink in the bar before catching a film on one of the buildings cinema screens.

\r\n

Knowledge Lives Everywhere is proof that an exhibition can involve painting, sculpture, installation and physical interaction, to have community projects involved and still appeal to so many. Be sure to go and see the main entrance where the outside has been transformed…
