We are a leading visual arts organisation and our mission is to deliver world-class art in Liverpool that is accessible and inspires.

We work in partnership with internationally renowned artists and cultural organisations to commission and produce world-class art and to create opportunities for the public to engage with the work. We engage and inspire diverse audiences and communities with what we do in ways that harness the creativity of local people to build and share their skills. We are the place where people, art and technology meet. Each year we welcome over 250,000 people to our building and our Learning Programme has over 10,000 interactions with young people and adults from across Merseyside.
