Adults

We want to make culture inclusive for everyone by creating a shared space and provide an environment to exchange stories. We work with adults of all ages with special programmes dedicated to over 60s and veterans.

Through art, creativity and innovation, our belief is that we can help to address important issues such as community cohesion, digital inclusion, health and civic participation.

Over 60s

Become a Digital Ambassador and explore art, technology and the cultural heritage of Liverpool in FACT's creative and digital programme for older adults. The group meets twice a month on Monday afternoons for workshops and activities with artists and technologists. The group shares stories and engages with FACT’s artistic programme whilst learning new technologies together.

As well as working with FACT, the Digital Ambassadors are part of a wider project which is in collaboration with National Museums Liverpool and Open Eye Gallery. Young at Art is a long-term project working with over 60s across the Liverpool City Region to create a new cultural network with an active sense of digital agency.

I’m of an age which missed out on computers. I’ve now found out that there’s nothing to be afraid of – it’s just a glorified typewriter.

Digital Ambassador

Young at Art is a Liverpool City Region-wide arts programme produced through a partnership between National Museums Liverpool, FACT, and Open Eye Gallery.

Young at Art is funded by Arts Council England and The Baring Foundation and supported by National Lottery funding.

Veterans

We have been working with military veterans since 2012 through the award-winning Veterans in Practice (VIP) programme. Open to veterans (anyone who has served a day or more in the armed forces) from all services and of all ages, VIP work collaboratively with professional artists to create their own creative digital projects.

As well as projects, veterans plus their friends and family are invited to join us for Ex-Forces Film Cub - a free monthly film screening to explore film and meet other veterans. Enjoy an eclectic programme of film screenings followed by the opportunity to chat and further explore the themes of the films. The films are hosted on the last Wednesday of each month at 1pm in The Box at FACT.
