The project: Design an interactive video game about your Liverpool with artist Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley.

We're looking for young people to help us create an interactive video game. You will work with artist Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley to create the Liverpool you want to exist. A city that supports you, your community and your family. As designers, all of your creative ideas and experiences will be included in the game for other people to play and explore. That means the world will be built around your persona and experiences. Within these landscapes your memories, movement and mind will populate the virtual world, creating something that is wholly yours. These will be combined with everyone’s to create a city that stores the existence of those involved in building it. A living archive of you.

  • The artwork will be shown in the gallery at FACT.

  • It will also live online, so people who aren’t in Liverpool can experience your created world.

  • You will be credited for your work.


Your role: Designer.

You will...

  • Be part of a group of 10 young people.

  • Design your own avatar that represents you, your own environment that will hold up the memories of you.

  • You do not need any experience of designing or using technology. You will learn it all!

Your commitment

  • To attend the sessions.

  • To contribute your knowledge of Liverpool.

  • To bring your experience as a producer and user of technology.

  • To design elements of the final artwork.

  • To decide with Danielle how to launch the artwork.


To take part you must be aged between 13 - 17. The group will consist of 10 young people and will take place over 7 - 8 days (1 day = 4 hours).


  • 2 days in February half term
  • 19 - 20 March
  • 2 days in Easter Holiday
  • Plus online sessions.

You will be paid £20 for each session you attend to cover the costs of getting to and from the sessions and living expenses. This will need to be signed off by your Parent / Guardian after each session.

How to Apply

If this sounds like something you would like to do, email or DM us on social media and we will pass it on to our learning team.

Under 18s will need a signed permission from a Parent / Guardian, alongside a signed image consent form.
