Heart of Glass are supporting artists working with communities in St Helens and Knowsley to test, explore and develop new, innovative ideas and engage new audiences.

We are developing a season of events celebrating our communities’ love and appreciation of green spaces running from 16th September – 14th October 2023 in St Helens and Knowsley. The programme will invite audiences to go on a sensory journey as we explore ideas around climate change together. Artists will collaborate with local communities and respond to local green spaces – including parks, allotments and community gardens.
