I’m exhausted just looking through the list of items included in the City In Transition programme. This is actually part of the Culture Company’s ‘Liverpool Performs 2006’ and is a sort of umbrella for several things, many of which happen annually anyway. But the common theme is the city and its transformation, regeneration etc.
‘As we move towards 2008 the city is experiencing tremendous change at high speed. This is both exhilarating and disruptive and our City in Transition programme for 2006 takes that all on board in a special programme of talks, debates, walks, exhibitions and local and international performance – all connected in some way to architecture, building and the way cities change.‘
You’ll find all the current details on 3 separate pages: City Talks, City Walks and City Screen.
City Talks: includes a lot of talks about architecture (first is on May 4th) especially during Architecture Week (in June), talks at the Tate, Biennial talks and lots of others.
City Walks: Blue and Green Badge guided tours of regeneration areas, public monuments, etc. the Pool Project’s (secret) Elemental Journeys and lots more.
City Screen: includes films, exhibitions and events such as the 37 seconds screenings on the Big Screen, the Made in Liverpool series, Bluecoats Pool of Sound project and lots more.
Take a look and keep an eye on the 08 website, my diary is now full already.
