I was sat at my desk in an accountancy when I realised my passion for the creative and visual arts wasn’t leaving. I quit my job, and after a summer of soul-searching, living out of the back of a van and working at music festivals across Europe, I was enrolled onto the Creative Writing and Film Studies course at LJMU. My degree provides in-depth subject specific knowledge, but with persistently broad ranging interests from original writing forms, typography and filmmaking to visual and conceptual art, there was still something missing. I became obsessed with anything that crosses mediums and multimedia installations. I needed a space to consolidate varying interests, and ideally to share this with others. I found that space in Art in Liverpool – who I’m incredibly proud to write for. I aim to create a window to all forms of art in Liverpool, for those who are looking for it.

Double Act: Art and Comedy

Review: Double Act: Art and Comedy Tour by Frances Greenfield

Greenfield encourages you to enjoy, but also look beyond, whether they are funny or not. It becomes apparent that medium and context add other facets which make it hard to classify. It’s subjective.
