Our History

In 2018 FACT turned 15.

Born out of Moviola, FACT was established as an organisation passionate about video and new media art, exhibiting and curating the work of artists that had little platform in the UK.


FACT Opening, Liverpool ECHO 2003

When we first opened our doors on Wood Street in 2003, we became Liverpool’s first new arts build for over 60 years, since the Philharmonic Hall in 1939. Coinciding with Liverpool’s successful bid for European Capital of Culture, we quickly became a world leading exhibitor and producer of video and digital art.

Our first exhibition, Isaac Julien’s Baltimore, was commissioned for the opening and it continued to tour for the next decade.

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