Bold Projects: Coming Soon at FACT

FACT’s Collaboration Programme is beginning a major new three-year programme of events and presentations using the city’s Bold Street as inspiration, subject, venue and metaphor. As one of the most important and historical streets in the city, Bold Street has a vast and rich story to tell. Its future looks uncertain as the Grosvenor project is drawing business to the other side of the city, suggesting its has passed its peak; deep in contrast with its past when Bold Street was regarded as the ‘Bond Street of the North’ notorious for its wealthy clientele.

tenantspin will help launch the programme with a new commission in the Media Lounge in June, working with Liverpool artist Michelle Wren and Amsterdam-based Social Media Evangelist Katie Lips from Kisky Netmedia to develop a diorama of Bold Street that includes a growing archive of still images, moving image content, live blog and a series of short film micro-commissions.
