Art in Liverpool are delighted to be running this year’s Liverpool Biennial Fringe, celebrating 20 years of the Independents Biennial, and shining a light on the local artists, local galleries and local places that make this region such a brilliant place to make and see great art.

Working with partners across the region we want to put the same amount of our time and energy into each borough of the Liverpool City Region. Over the next few months we will be holding a series of public consultations and steering group meetings to define what shape the festival should take, but we need your feedback even if you can’t make it to those meetings.

Sign up to the festival mailing list below, where we’ll keep you up to date on opportunities, new additions, events and exhibitions as and when we confirm them.

The full programme will be released closer to the festival –  14th July – 28th October 2018

While we’re bringing in ideas about the future of the festival though, take a look back at some of the Fringe highlights over the years:
