The Bold Street Project and The Flickr Group: Background
The Bold Street project has been uncovering, filming and photographing Bold Street Liverpool, its social, cultural and economic history, from the perspective of its traders, residents and community; and from the perspective of many Liverpool based Flickr members and photographers.
Flickr.com has played an enormous part in the project; enabling us to show the Bold Street images online as well as in the Media Lounge Exhibit. The Liverpool photographer community has been instrumental in helping us create a unique, diverse and significant collaborative work. New photographs of Bold Street and its people, contributed by Flickr members is now displayed in the Bold Street project exhibition at FACT, Liverpool.
As a thank you to the Flickr community, and so that we can meet even more of you, we have arranged this unique photography tour event as a Flickr Meetup,
We hope to see you there! Please sign up on Upcoming: http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/219033
