Liverpool Artists’ Network Meeting Monday 18th February 2019 at Make North Docks, 6.30pm – 8.30pm.

The Liverpool Artists’ Network meetings are there for you to meet other artists, share ideas, get feedback, make connections and discuss collaboration opportunities.  It’s all very informal and sometimes ends with some of the group going to the pub for a few after.  As an attendee you are invited to speak to the room.  Maybe you have an idea that you want to sound out, or you want to start a specific project and you need to recruit people to work on it, or you’re an established organisation with services to offer artists.

We want you to make something happen.

We would like you to get in touch if you want to speak at the meeting, or if you really want to share something but you’re not the public speaking type, we can speak on your behalf, if you bring the details to the meeting.  Anyone who is interested in your idea can then speak with you in a more informal way after the presentations.

Please email liverpoolartnet@yahoo.co.uk  if you would like to speak at the meeting,

Here are some topics that have been discussed before:

Light Night

Liverpool Biennial

New projects

Sharing resources

Research

Joint programming

Group exhibitions

Joint promotion

Please also let us know if you’re coming to the meeting – email liverpoolartnet@yahoo.co.uk.

Liverpool Artists’ Network special Independents Biennial meeting at Tate Liverpool, Friday 14th September, 1pm – 4pm.

Liverpool Artists’ Network special Independents Biennial meeting at Tate Liverpool, Friday 14th September, 1pm – 4pm.

In partnership with Liverpool Independents Biennial  we are holding this meeting as a Tate Exchange event, to give a flavour of Liverpool’s independent and artist led art scene and provide the opportunity for artists and arts organisations to informally chat, and build relationships.

The event will include short presentations from independent and artist led organisations based in Merseyside.  If you’ve never been to a LAN meeting before, or you’re interested in knowing more about Liverpool’s independent art scene, this is a great place to start.  For this meeting we are also advertising nationally, to invite artists and organisations from other cities to come and connect with us.  We’d love to see this lead to collaborative work with artists and organisations from other areas.

More about Liverpool Artists’ Network

Liverpool Artists’ Network was set up in 2015 as an artist-led platform to connect the artists, art organisations, art venues, groups and collectives of Liverpool. The Network is a simple concept, it does not represent, endorse or advertise individual artists or organisations, but instead provides the means for these individuals to engage in discussion and plan work to collectively deliver art events across the Liverpool region.  You can find out more on our website www.liverpoolartistsnetwork.org.

If you would like to attend this meeting please email liverpoolartnet@yahoo.co.uk. It is a free event and open to all.

Venue: Tate Liverpool, Albert Dock, Liverpool, L3 4BB.
Date: Friday 14th September 2018
Time: 1pm – 4pm

 

 

Liverpool Artists’ Network Meeting – ‘Presentations Special’, Wednesday 27th June at DoES, 6.30pm – 8.30pm

Venue details:  DoES Liverpool, 1st Floor, The Tapestry, 68-76 Kempston Street, Liverpool. L3 8HL.  www.doesliverpool.com

Speakers at the LAN meetings usually talk about a project that they are working on or a project they want to start.  This is great! BUT, we also want to encourage speakers to come and present about themselves and their work, to say, this is who I am/what I do/what I think.

We’re hoping that many of you will want to speak, but as we don’t have all night…  we’re going to keep the presentations short and sweet.  The presentation format is slightly different from when we did it at the Bluecoat – you will be asked to show 10 images, each for 40 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images.  So you get less than 7 minutes to do your presentation.

Other than the format of 10 slides and 40 seconds per slide, you can talk about whatever you want: your interests in general, work you have made in the past, exhibitions or projects you’ve been part of, specific themes that interest you, other artists who inspire you – whatever you think you need to say to connect with the kind of people who you want to link up with.  Remember, it’s mostly a visual experience, so choose some good images.

We have a limited number of spaces for the presentations, so if you would like to introduce Liverpool to your work, please email us ASAP to let us know.  We’ll take names on a first come first served basis.

Following on from the presentations, there will be a short 10 minute break, for you to meet, mingle and grab a brew. We will be rounding up the evening by leaving a bit of time for the usual presentations, so if you want to mention an upcoming event/project idea (without using slides) just let us know.

And if you’ve got any questions at all just get in touch.  We look forward to seeing you there!

 

 

Notes from Liverpool Artists’ Network Meeting Wednesday 7th March 2018 at John Moores University, Liverpool School of Art and Design, 6.30pm – 8.30pm.

News from LAN

Colette and Josie have been in touch with Islington Mill and Paradise Works in Manchester to start discussions about a LAN meeting that would happen in Manchester, for artists and arts organisations from Manchester and Liverpool to attend to build links and make connections.  We want to know if LAN members would come to a meeting in Manchester and if they would prefer the meeting to be on an evening or a weekend.

More people in the meeting seemed to prefer a weekday evening meeting and it was suggested that the meeting could coincide with a visit to a gallery to see an exhibition

We would like to have another meeting where members do presentations, similar to the ‘Pecha Kucha’ meeting at the Bluecoat, as the response was very good.  We are looking for a venue that would accommodate this meeting (with projector facilities) and if anyone has any ideas please let us know.

 

Patrick from Art in Liverpool

Patrick spoke about the new Art in Liverpool Newspaper which has been funded by advertising.  It will be a monthly newspaper.  Art in Liverpool is keen to engage with the public living in the boroughs outside of the Liverpool City region to encourage more people form these area to visit art exhibitions and take an interest  in artistic activity.  People living in these areas are currently less likely to visit an art exhibition than people living in the Liverpool City region and so lots of magazines are available in the boroughs outside of the City Region.  If any arts organisations are interested in advertising, a quarter page in the newspaper is £75.

 

Art in Liverpool is leading the fringe festival that will run alongside Liverpool Biennial this year.  There will be an announcement soon about funding which will be available for artistic activity happening in the boroughs in Merseyside that are outside of the Liverpool City region.  Art in Liverpool wants to help artists to put on a vibrant Biennial fringe festival and will help with anything they can, for instance connecting artists with each other or recommending exhibition spaces and giving other advice.

Barry Webb – Project Nepomuk

Barry has been working on Project Nepomuk, a cross cultural project that will include a concert performance of Nepumuk the Opera on 29th and 30th June in Old Christ Church, Waterloo, as part of a mini Bohemian Summer Festival. For more information see www.projectnepomuk.com.

Liverpool Artists’ Network Christmas meet up 7pm on Wednesday 20th December 2017

Hello everyone,

After the last meeting in the Bluecoat quite a few people went to the pub and we had a very nice time and some great conversations, so we have decided to continue that theme and make the next LAN meeting just an informal get together in the pub for drinks, chat and if you want, some Christmas merriment. It’s a sort of office Christmas party for all you people who don’t work in an office (The LAN office being the pub).

We are meeting at 7pm on Wednesday 20th December at The Railway 18 Tithebarn Street, Liverpool. L22DT http://www.therailwayliverpool.com

Put it in your diary and we hope lots of you can come. We’ll have a proper type LAN meeting in the new year.

Best Wishes

Liverpool Artists’ Network Meeting – ‘Petcha Koucha Special, Thursday 21st September at the Bluecoat, 6.30pm – 8.30pm

This time round the Liverpool Artists’ Network meeting will be a little bit different….

Come and join the Liverpool Artists’ Network meeting at the Bluecoat, Thursday 21st September, 6.30pm till 8.30pm.

Speakers at the LAN meetings usually talk about a project that they are working on or a project they want to start.  This is great! BUT, we also want to encourage speakers to come and present about themselves and their work, to say, this is who I am/what I do/what I think.

We’re hoping that many of you will want to speak, but as we don’t have all night…  we’re going to keep the presentations short and sweet and in the style of a ‘ Petcha Koucha’. Pecha Kucha is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images.  So you get less than 7 minutes to do your presentation.

It will be fun!  We promise.

Other than the format of 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide, you can talk about whatever you want: your interests in general, work you have made in the past, exhibitions or projects you’ve been part of, specific themes that interest you, other artists who inspire you – whatever you think you need to say to connect with the kind of people who you want to link up with.  Remember, it’s mostly a visual experience, so choose some good images.

We have a limited number of spaces for the Petcha Koucha, so if you would like to introduce Liverpool to your work, please email liverpoolartnet@yahoo. co.uk ASAP to let us know.  We’ll take names on a first come first served basis.

Following on from the Petcha Kouchas, there will be a short 10 minute break, for you to meet, mingle and grab a brew.
