What The Flux¿

NOT your usual festival, Flux Liverpool is the opportunity young creatives across Merseyside have been waiting for, culminating in a 17 day celebration from 17 July to 2 August 2014.

Flux Liverpool is a new approach to embed young people within the arts community of the City Region (South Merseyside). In the lead up to the 17 day celebration young people will be engaging, creating and collaborating with the Liverpool arts community.

Venues across the City will host Flux Liverpool events, performances, workshops, projects, and exhibitions providing the means for Liverpool's youth to showcase their talents, and develop future business opportunities long after the festival has finished. Flux Liverpool will also offer existing organisations across Liverpool with fresh business perspectives, new connections, and potential new partners.

A board of young ambassadors and producers are developing and leading this new initiative. The board comprises of passionate young co-ordinators with fresh perspectives of their own, whilst being mentored by experienced local and national producers and cultural developers.

Joe Crawford, Flux Liverpool Ambassador and Producer said:- "Flux Liverpool is going to demonstrate how, given the right tools, our City's youth can exhibit their extraordinary talents for performance, business, and collaboration. I'm really enjoying every minute!"

This new take on a festival is a collaboration between LARC (Liverpool Arts Regeneration Consortium), COoL (Creative Organisations of Liverpool), National Museums Liverpool and Open Culture, it is supported by Liverpool ONE and IdeasTap, with the aim of promoting and encouraging young entrepreneurialism within the arts. Arts Council England has awarded Flux Liverpool with over £90,000 and the 2014 festival is intended to be the first in a series of biennial International Youth Arts and Cultural Festivals in Liverpool and Merseyside.

Events on offer throughout the 17 day celebration include Young DaDaFest, Blueprint Festival 2014 for Circuit at Tate Liverpool, The BIG Event and the Young Liverpool Film Night at FACT.

Andrea Nixon, Executive Director, Tate Liverpool said:- "Young people are one of this City's biggest assets and in order for Liverpool to thrive we need to recognise and encourage their creativity and talent. Both the Blueprint Festival 2014 and Flux Liverpool are fantastic opportunities to connect 15 to 25 year olds to the arts and showcase some amazing work from creative young Liverpool."
