Summer 2019

Join us this season as we explore the future world of work and our place within it.

Enjoy free entry to our major exhibition, REAL WORK, which presents two new powerful installations by artists Liz Magic Laser and Candice Breitz.

We have a summer of activities including debut performances from The Liverpool Complaints Choir – Citizens Singing About Work, a self-care drawing workshop, guided walks of Liverpool’s sexual entertainment venues, and a symposium about the issues of precarious work.

Plus, Saturdays just got better! Enjoy our free, drop-in family activities every weekend to learn and create together. You can also grow an idea or start something new in our Learning Space which has had a co-working makeover. Open to all, plug in your laptop or phone and enjoy free WiFi and refreshments.

We hope you have a wonderful summer and we look forward to welcoming you to FACT!
