In The Frame is a Mencap project that has been happening with Tate Liverpool since 2006, sponsored by Nokia. The In the Frame group of 10 people with a learning disability have produced The Art Lover’s Guide.

The group has also launched an art exhibition sponsored by the Liverpool Culture Company, at Tate Liverpool as part of Liverpool 08. It is open from 14 to 19 November (gallery closed 17 November). The exhibition, called In My Liverpool Home, is part of Liverpool 08.

The In the Frame group have devised and are curating In My Liverpool Home. They helped run art workshops around Liverpool in September to help people who wanted to send in artwork. Over 100 entries were sent in and the group had a hard job picking a shortlist. In My Liverpool Home shows a fantastic range of paintings, photography, models, crafts, ceramics and video.
