Community Creators

From our terraced streets and Georgian squares to our bustling suburbs and post-war estates, our communities tell their stories in every language, every accent, every artform and every style. And at the heart of these communities are creative organisations that make the space and give the support that we all need to tell our tales in the best ways we can.

The Black-E has been connecting artists and communities in the city’s heart for well over 50 years. Launched in 1968 as the UK’s first community arts project, its beautiful building stands on Great George Street beside our stunning Chinese arch – an elegant home for a huge variety of arts and culture activities. Exhibitions, workshops and performance are all part of the Black-E mix – and everyone can come along.

Liverpool’s Chinese community has enriched our city since the mid-19th century, and Pagoda Arts continues the tradition, creating thrilling new cultural connections for today. Its unique Pagoda Chinese Youth Orchestra works at the cutting edge of Chinese and Western music, while its classes and workshops give everyone the chance to enjoy artforms and experiences including tai chi, music and dance.

Squash on Windsor Street in Toxteth is an award-winning project that combines art, food and the environment – an inspiring organisation building loving and sustainable community living.

The Windows Project has been unlocking a love of writing across Liverpool for over four decades.

New writers can visit the Writing Advice Desk for feedback on stories, scripts and poems. Look out for Smoke, their own small press magazine, and arrange a visit to their Small Press Library in the Central Library’s stunning Picton Reading Room.
