Working at FACT means meeting new people and being in touch with different organisations.
On Friday 22nd we joined Crisis’ staff to help to fit out the exhibition and the workshop tables in The Box – it was hardwork but it was worth it: the room was beautiful. We hung the wall with pictures and covered the tables with plenty of craft materials for the workshop in the afternoon.
Many people came to the alternative tour of Liverpool to explore new roads and go round buildings which were personal to Crisis’ members. During the tour we went past the Anglican Cathedral, St James Gardens, the Toxteth Library, and in all these places enjoyed wonderful performances, heard poems, letters songs, and we also had an unexpected break with a delicious ice-cream – very lucky, the weather was so warm!
In the afternoon people came to join the creative workshop, they sketched and drew places and monuments of the city, and there was music too.
