About

Life and art will collide with thrilling immediacy in this unmissable, unique 10-month commission which is being created especially for Liverpool in 2018.

Rapid Response Unit is a year of news seen through the lens of leading national and international artists as they respond to global events and world stories as they happen.

Each day, week or fortnight from the end of February to December, commissioned artists and performers, paired with some of the city’s most innovative and acclaimed arts and cultural organisations, will produce challenging new work based on, and inspired by, a key story or topic that is in the headlines.

Digital, film, live performance and art works will be distributed free nationally and internationally to broadcast, print and online media from a special independent news bureau which will take up residence in Liverpool’s St Johns Market.

And the final artistic work will also be performed or exhibited at venues across the city.

The public will also be an integral part of the artistic process, and will be given the chance to shape the whole programme, being encouraged to come forward with news stories which matter to them.

Rapid Response Unit will put art and culture at the heart of the news agenda, and Liverpool at the heart of every story.
