As mentioned in the previous post, the Urban Beach in Williamson Square is part of Liverpool BID’s summer programme and ‘Alive After Five!’ This includes the Bold Street area where UrbanCanvas are organising live art events on each Thursday during August .
Details below from UrbanCanvas…
Join us this Thursday 6th August 2009 between 3pm and 6pm at the bottom of Bold Street, Liverpool (outside the old Lyceum Post Office) Where Liverpool’s own team of internationally acclaimed artists (UrbanCanvas) will be transforming Bold street into the city’s answer to The Fourth Plinth….an open air gallery of contemporary art….for three hours at least……..this will be the first of four events happening every Thursday in August around the Bold Street area………Based around the Year of The Environment celebrations, join us every week as we transform our environment with the help of the public, volunteers and artists…..a real interactive street art experience!
Call to arms…….We are looking for three volunteers to take part this Thursday (6th August) between 3pm and 6pm) three hours inclusive. You will be required to sit down, wear masks etc for the duration….you will be instructed on what to do by the artists…..this will be a live art installation. This event is part of the Liverpool BID summer programme and coincides with the launch of Urban Beach in Williamson Square.
Space for Art…..just like the fourth plinth……we will be setting aside a space for art where people who may be interested can come down and create art within a given space on Bold Street…..this will be a spontaneous and random happening!
We Repeat……. As part of this event we will be having ‘a space for art’ where people can come down and spontaneously create art within a given space on the street…….a bit like The Fourth Plinth this will be a place of random happenings for anybody who wishes to make or create stuff in a public place!!! (Rules apply!)
By the way the space measures 12ft x 8ft
