In  the  wake of Liverpool’s successful year in 2008 as European Capital of  Culture,  St.Helens  Council  is  working with Liverpool City Council & the other  Merseyside  local  authority partners and funded by the 08 Legacy to link with complementary activity with key events taking place in Liverpool.

This year, Liverpool is set to host a fabulous event at the heart of the city. ‘On the Waterfront’ will take place at the Pier Head and historic Docks and celebrates the best of Liverpool – past, present and future. The On the Waterfront (8-15 September) is a celebration of all things nautical!

To complement this event, St.Helens Council seeks to commission an arts organisation to manage and deliver the creation and production of a large high profile 3D Pavement Artwork to supplement this Liverpool featured event in Church Square, St.Helens.
