A unique artists conference comprising tours, networking, an artists information resource, exhibition and a panel discussion. Our current exhibitions, NAVIGATOR and Mr Democracy will remain open to the public over the weekend, so if you have not yet had the chance to visit this will be an ideal opportunity.

Artists Resource Open Sat 25th 11am – 4pm, Sun 26th 11am – 6pm at The Royal Standard Project Space.

Exercises In Seeing, Exhibition Saturday 25th, Dusk – Dawn, The Royal Standard Project Space.

The Winner Takes It All? Panel discussion, Sunday 26th, 1.45 pm at Static, 23 Roscoe Lane, Liverpool L1 9JD.

From Friday, 25 artists will arrive in Liverpool to explore the Capital of Culture. Through their investigations and the experience of The Royal Standard and Red Wire we will discuss the opportunities and meaning the title has for artists. Many of the attending artists have links to other Capitals of Culture including Glasgow (1990) Vilnius (2009) and Istanbul (2010) and as such will make a valuable contribution to the debate.

Attending artists will contribute artwork and information from their own cities to an artists resource which will be held at the Royal Standard and open to the public.
