Independence Day (Tomorrow!)

Tomorrow is Independence Day at FACT! Join the lovely Jayne Casey (loveliverpool) who’s chairing a keynote webcast discussion on the past, present and future of Bold Street. Join in in The Box, FACT, Wood Street, Liverpool 2.00-3.00pm

As one of the most important and historical streets in the city – once known as The Bond Street of The North - Bold Street has a rich story to tell. With its future uncertain as Liverpool City Centre changes beyond recognition, we examine its lifeblood, sounds, economy, policing, flavours and sense of community. Guests include Matthew Biagetti, Development Manager at Liverpool Vision, and representatives from News From Nowhere and Utility.

The event is also listed on Upcoming, if you’re an Upcoming Fan!

New Film: Mind Drift

Filmmaker Emily Voelker has been collaborating with tenantspin tenants over the last 4 months on a film entitled Mind Drift. The film is a collection of 14 sets of images taken from the point of view of a consumer walking down Bold Street.

Themes covered include shopping, dirt, architecture, people and poetry. Brash, beautiful and funny, the film captures the sheer range of activity, personality and function the street has to offer.
