Making More Sense – Discussion

13-15.00 Friday 3 November 2006

Picton Reading Room
Central Library
William Brown Street

Liverpool Biennial is a major event in the international arts calendar. It happens for ten weeks every two years, and is on now. Several hundred of the world’s most exciting visual artists are showing their work in over 40 locations across the city, ranging from Tate Liverpool to unexpected temporary locations.

Making More Sense is a new and exciting three-year art project which began in January 2006. A major aim and rationale of the project is to have a lasting legacy in the development of a forum that would set out to assist other brain injured people. This would involve the development of a permanent base with exhibition and workshop facilities, run by and for those with a brain injury. Making More Sense is run as a partnership between Mersey Care Brain Injuries Rehabilitation Centre (BIRC) and artists Steve Rooney and Sue Williams, who are TAG (The Artists Group)

Through an invitation from Chilean artist Mario Navarro, nine of the Making More Sense group have collaborated on Two Rooms, a project for Liverpool Biennial’s International 06 exhibition. For the project each participant was asked to customise a chair to reflect their own biography. The resulting chairs are displayed in the Picton Reading Room as part of Navarro’s installation for International 06 which opened on 16 September and will close on 26 November 2006.

The discussion on Friday 3 November will reflect on the achievements of Making More Sense and to share the participants experiences of working with Liverpool Biennial.
