Four Corners 2009. 22-29 July

As part of Four Corners 09, hundreds of people in Liverpool’s five neighbourhoods have been exploring the question ‘What makes a neighbourhood?’.

Within the theme of Liverpool’s Year of the Environment, they created arts projects with cultural organisations Arts in Regeneration, the Bluecoat, Encounters, ICDC, and Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse

At the Bluecoat, find the highlights of this collective creativity and share the stories of participants’ relationships with where they live, the natural world and each other.

Enjoy an exhibition, performances, one off events, workshops, films and food, and discover ways to reduce your own carbon footprint.

Four Corners 09 is produced by Culture Liverpool.
