The Liverpool element of the North West Visual Arts Open takes place from 2 to 3 March 2012, with an exciting programme of free public events taking place in galleries across the city. Two further North West Open Arts weekends are planned in Manchester and Cumbria/Lancashire in April and May this year.
A new type of film event is coming to Liverpool's vibrant arts scene, but one which you need to keep your eyes peeled and your wits about you to catch. On the 6 and 7 March 2012, Reel Unknown invites you to enter a secret world, its Hidden Picture Show, and explore the unknown. The film that will be shown? A secret. The event's location? Undisclosed. Avid film fans will have to follow subtle clues revealed via twitter and facebook regarding these vital factors, opening the debate on which unique adventure ticket holders will discover.
Like you, we care passionately about the arts and culture scene in Liverpool, so we thought we would put together a few suggestions of things to do this week and what's coming up soon. It is of course mostly what we're interested in but I hope you like them to.
