FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) is the UK's leading media arts centre, based in Liverpool. Offering a unique programme of exhibitions, film and participant-led art projects, we use the power of creative technology to inspire and enrich lives. 

“Liverpool's forward-thinking all-inclusive creative technology institution” Dazed and Confused

Our award-winning FACT building is home to three galleries (showing four exhibitions per year), a beautiful café operated by the team behind LEAF on Bold Street, a cosy bar, and four state of the art film screens (including intimate sofa-seated The Box), programmed by our cinema partner Picturehouse and showing the best in independent and mainstream film.

Showcasing ground-breaking new media art from across the world, our artistic programme has presented over 350 new media and digital artworks from artists including Pipilotti Rist, Nam June Paik, Bill Viola, Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Isaac Julien.

"This is a gallery that allows digital artists to think like film-makers and have their ambitions realised in a professional environment." Isaac Julien

Each year, our dynamic Learning programme (including Young People, Intergenerational and Adult Learning) offer exciting opportunities for more than 3000 individuals from all backgrounds and ages to discover and be inspired by creative technology, art and film.

As a centre for Research & Innovation, we work with partners across the creative industries, health, higher education and arts sectors to develop multi-disciplinary projects exploring the relationship between technology and culture.  

Based in the heart of the independent Ropewalks quarter, FACT works in partnership with organisations and businesses help drive regeneration in the city. FACT is a member of LARC (Liverpool Arts Regeneration Consortium) and chairs the Ropewalks CIC.

FACT is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. We are proud to be part of the Arts Council’s National Portfolio and Liverpool City Council’s Arts and Cultural Investment Programme.
