The Welcoming took place on Saturday afternoon at Albert Dock.
Bluecoat Connect worked with international artist, Humberto Velez on The Welcoming, commissioned by Liverpool Biennial: International 06.
The boat, Glaciere, glided into Albert Dock carrying a group of young people from Refugee Action. The passengers disembarked to a welcome of music, dance and speeches from members of Liverpool’s Chinese, Irish and Congolese communities.
There was good crowd there with plenty of involvement from community groups and children performing all afternoon.
