At The Reader at Calderstones we share great stories together to help us make sense of the world. In response to Covid-19, we are inviting you to create your own page for our Commonplace Book – a community scrapbook which will capture the ways people have lived through this crisis.

Anyone can contribute. We want to record the ups, downs, and everything in between. Comforting lockdown recipes, quotes from books & poems you read, drawings, letters & photographs. We will be displaying it at The Mansion House for all to see & to inspire people in the future. Who knows, perhaps your favourite lockdown recipe will become a dish we serve at The Reader Café?

Download the pack from The Reader Website, or pick a pack up in The Reader Shop open 12noon-4pm, Thursday-Sunday.

Read the instructions and use the blank page provided to create your response. Alternatively, you can create your own activity. It’s up to you how you choose to represent your experience – just think about what you would want someone in 100 years to understand about life during Covid-19.  When you’ve completed your page, you can bring it to the Mansion and drop it into the box in the entrance hall. Alternatively, you can post it to us at The Mansion House, Calderstones Park, Liverpool, L18 3JB.

The project will culminate in a celebratory sharing of the work produced, which the young people themselves will organise. This is likely to be online following current guidelines. The project will be led by experienced community arts facilitators - who will work with participants to encourage better connection between young people and their wider local community, build confidence, develop skills in drama, art, events planning etc. – alongside this it will be an opportunity to have fun! The project is open to any young person (12+) in Merseyside who would like to get involved - no previous experience/knowledge is required.

Create a Protest Plant with artist Faith Bebbington - a large freestanding sculpture featuring hands as the branches and leaves. Following initial discussions about racism (and school preparation prior to the session) pupils will come up with their own protest slogans to visualise their opinions. The plant will incorporate slogans in the palm of the hands and around the base. This will hopefully make a positive impact on pupils and the audience. The slogans or sound bites will look similar to circular badges used in the past to make personal protests. The base of the plant will be rainbow colours to signify diversity. The piece will be made using simple recycled materials such as newspaper, cardboard and tape to construct the sculpture, then decorate the surface using papier-mâché. Faith will also introduce the work of the Anthony Walker Foundation either by showing a short film, or encouraging the school to consider buying in one of their resources as preparation for the workshop.

  • Saturdays - 3-4:30pm face to face, in the Comics Youth HQ on Tithebarn St, Liverpool City Centre, Suite 3.3
These sessions offer young people the space to develop their writing and creative skills through:
  • workshops;
  • publishing opportunities from our publishing house 'Marginal' (which is run by young people, for young people);
  • creating campaign work.
The Safe Spaces sessions are tailored to the groups' wants and needs, mainly focusing on topics such as inclusivity, safety in the city, mental health and recovery. We are currently beginning to develop a Trail through Liverpool, compiled of spaces young people feel safe in. We will then use these spaces to showcase their work, writing, poetry, art and more! We will use a podcast to guide visitors around the city explaining the work and reasoning behind the campaign, which is to make young people reclaim their spaces in the city centre and understand what it meant by a 'safe space', and how to create them.

Professional sculptor Faith Bebbington will guide you through the process of creating sculpture using simple techniques and recycled materials.  Having led workshops in schools for many years Faith has found that using newspaper and sticky tape is an ideal way for children and young people to build successful sculptures quickly. These simple techniques are easy for everyone to try at home. You don’t need any special equipment apart from a pair of scissors, an old newspaper and a roll of sticky tape. These activities are suitable for complete beginners, for children to enjoy on their own or as a family activity. Children under 7 years old will need adult supervision.

With research suggesting that Covid-19 transmits significantly less in open spaces than indoors, many schools are seeing the power of Outdoor Learning – as its approaches allow children to work in “bubbles”. Our Outdoor Learning programmes have long been both popular and successful – and are ideally suited to the current situation, providing children with fantastic opportunities to place curriculum areas in context, to enjoy all the myriad benefits of being outside and to engage in social (but safe) behaviour. All of them exist in age-differentiated formats from EYFS to Year 6  - and allow us to work with a number of groups in a single day. Outdoor Maths Outdoor spaces provide wonderful opportunities to explore how numbers and shapes create both the built and natural worlds. So our engaging (and very active!) outdoor maths workshops, utilising our specially designed portable Outdoor Maths Trail, feature a range of tried and tested al fresco activities, bringing home the relevance of numeracy to our everyday lives – and providing lots of scope for problem solving too! Outdoor Literacy From The Gruffalo to Alice in Wonderland, many of the “greats’ of children’s literature, of course, are set wholly or partly outdoors – inspiring our exciting and engaging Outdoor Literacy workshop - CSI: Bookmark … The Book Review Competition at Little Podmore Library received record entries this year – but someone snuck in before judging was complete, and jumbled up all the entries! In a series of age-differentiated workshops, your children will work in “bubbles” on a carousel supporting them in realising just how much they know about literature. And, as they explore to the full their creative connection-making skills, we’re sure they’ll be able to make sense of it all! Purchase Your Own Outdoor Maths Trail Our Outdoor Maths Trail comprises ten durable, waterproof bags, each containing age-differentiated Outdoor Maths questions, challenges and activities - together with all required resources (plus a Teacher's Guide) - all contained in one easy-to-carry box. Available in formats for both primary and secondary schools, the Trail focuses on a whole range of mathematical areas including additive reasoning, multiplicative reasoning number patterns, fractions, percentages, properties of 2D shapes, properties of 3D shapes, money, positional language, multi-stage problem solving and logic problems.

This arts-based research project centres around labyrinth activities. The labyrinth is an ancient archetype that has re-emerged in recent decades and is often used in educational as well as health and well-being settings. The aim is to explore how arts activities can be useful during epidemics. In particular, how can children and teenagers process, reflect and capture their experiences of lockdown by engaging with labyrinth activities? As the COVID-19 pandemic left us adjusting to a very different way of life - many of us home schooling for the first time - the arts sector is playing a huge part in devising imaginative ways to help reduce social isolation and manage the mental health and well-being of communities. If you are interested in taking part and want to find out more, please access all the resources and information here and contact Elaine McNeill if you have any questions: e.mcneill@ljmu.ac.uk 07782 482 733

dot-art Launch NEW Online Art Classes 

Brilliant things can happen in times of uncertainty and as we all face the challenging times ahead, dot-art will be delivering our first ever series of ONLINE COURSES to help lift your energy, inspire your creativity and perhaps allow you to get a little distracted whilst learning a new skill. Our first release of online classes covers a range of exciting art forms, and we have plenty more for you to get involved with over the coming weeks.

All our online courses are led by our talented team of artist tutors, who have been working hard from their homes to turn their teaching expertise digital. We are sure you will be as delighted by the results as we are! Some classes will be delivered live and some pre-recorded, but all will be released regularly online, and available to go back and watch at your leisure for 12 weeks. With each session, you will receive a course handout to download and keep. The handouts detail what that session has covered so all the information is there to refer back to at any time. You will also be invited to join a closed Facebook group where you can get 1-2-1 feedback from your tutor, chat with other participants and ask questions at any time.

We have launched with four courses in a range of subjects but will be releasing more in the coming weeks, including Abstract Art, Still Life and Cartooning. We will also be repeating courses, so don’t worry, you can always book onto the next one!

Beginners Digital Photography - Led by professional photographer Mark Reeves, this six session course is designed for those who would like to move from being a keen beginner to a skilled intermediate photographer. Delivered via two-way video, this course will be taught LIVE during six one-hour sessions spread over two weeks. To get the most from this course you will need your own digital camera which allows you to manually control aperture, shutter speed, ISO (sensitivity) and focus

Introduction to Lino Cut - Explore and investigate the creative and rewarding artistic skills of lino cutting with artist and experienced teacher Catherine Carmyllie. This short two-week course will introduce you to the materials and tools of lino cutting before moving onto creating, cutting and printing your own design. You can even order your very own Lino Kit put together by Catherine so everything you need can be delivered safely to you at home.

Drawing Techniques - Get to grips with a variety of drawing techniques with professional artist Sarah Jane Richards. This four week drawing course is designed for beginners and those looking for inspiration in their drawing practice. Over the course you will learn and develop observational and expressive drawing techniques to create your own unique drawing style.

Introduction to Adobe Lightroom - Mark Reeves will be teaching photography lovers how to navigate Adobe Lightroom via two-way video course over two, intensive half-day sessions. If you already have Adobe Lightroom, this course will get you off to a flying start using the Library and Develop modules. If you’re a complete beginner this course will give you an in-depth overview of what an invaluable application it is.

Find out more at www.ascreativesconnect/family  All you have to do is select one of the rooms or spaces in our exciting House of Creative Learning – and have a go at some of the challenges you find in there. There are maths, literacy and science activities in each room – all fun and engaging, and all directly linked to the curriculum. And, as you travel around the house, you’ll find history, geography, music, art, design technology and PE challenges, too! And in each of these you’ll find a challenge for 4 – 6 year olds, one for 6 – 8 year olds, one for the over 9s – and one for the whole family to work on together. There’s a printable Floor Plan, so you can tick off the areas you’ve visited – and printable Answer Sheets too, if you want to use them! You won’t need any special resources (we know how tricky shopping is at the moment) just everyday items that you’ll already have at home. And as we’re as keen as you are on learning being contextualised and relevant to life, every challenge is directly connected to the room/space it’s based in.

Hello! We are the Learning team @ FACT and we explore art and technology as a space for learning.
Join our Facebook group for weekly STEAM activities to get kids and teens exploring their relationship with social media and the living planet. We'll set a new challenge for kids (under 11's) and teens (over 11’s) each week and ask you to share what you make with the rest of the group. We'll be making games, inventing and prototyping new tech, and taking inspiration from art made about animals and technology.
Through the summer we'll be working together to imagine what it would be like if animals had their own social media and supporting your kids and teens to build a creative portfolio documenting their work. Teens will have the opportunity to submit their portfolios for a Bronze Arts Award.
The themes we are exploring are inspired by FACT’s year-long theme: The Living Planet.

If used effectively our emotions serve us well, yet many of us were never taught how to process them effectively. Through this programme you will learn insightful creative activities that you can use to process your emotions now and in the future. There are 13 modules, each focusing on different aspects of how to process emotions. For each module there is a creative activity that is submitted to a registered therapist who will mentor you through the process. Participants will improve mental health resilience, communication skills and self awareness. "The activities are quick, easy and effective with immediate impact."

Welcome to Royal Liver Building 360, a tower tour and experience in the iconic Royal Liver Building. Our Tower Tour is a fun way of learning more about the history of the Royal Liver Building and experiencing the views from our 10th and 15th rooftop viewing platforms. Our tour takes you up through the west clock tower arriving first at the 10th floor giving you views across the Mersey as well as the highest external viewing point of the Great George Clocks. After this you ascend to the 14th floor behind the clock faces for an audio visual digitally mapped experience which lasts about 9 minutes before heading to the 15th floor for our 360 degree views of the City, the Docks and into the Wirral. Our tour is fully guided and lasts for around 60 minutes. Through out the attraction are a number of markers that can be activated by our app “Royal Liver Building 360” which help bring to life extra elements of the tour such as photos, videos, AR experiences as well as linking to google maps to help you explore the city further for its links to the building. Tours are done in groups of 15 (aged 7-11) plus two complimentary supervisor places, or groups of 12 (aged 12+) plus two complimentary supervisor places, along with a tour presenter. If your group is larger than this you will be across multiple consecutive tours. Tour times vary dependant on time of year but a schedule for your visit will be agreed at booking. The tour is only suitable for ages 7 and over due to the nature of the experience.

Shakespeare Schools Foundation (SSF) runs the world's largest youth drama festival. It offers a fantastic creative opportunity to more than 20,000 school students aged between 8-18 years old each year. Your cast of up to 35 students would become a theatre company, rehearsing an abridged Shakespeare play that they would perform at a professional theatre in autumn 2020. The annual festival is fully inclusive and non-competitive and builds invaluable skills which last a lifetime. We have performance nights at many theatres across the North West of England, including at the Capstone Theatre in Liverpool, Floral Pavilion in the Wirral and at Knowsley Leisure Centre and Culture Park. After taking part in our 2018 Festival, 97% of teachers said that their students’ teamwork improved and 96% said that their students were more resilient. Students' engagement in school and attainment across all subject areas showed a marked improvement. We know that our ambitious project has a transformative impact on students, giving them the confidence to succeed in whatever future challenges they may face.

  1. Come to FACT with your school and experience art in an unique way!
At FACT we mix our passions, using film, art and technology in a very creative way. Our current exhibition, You feel me_, presents artwork that needs to be experienced through all senses, and will challenge your students' traditional understanding of what takes place in an art gallery. For example:
  • Playing VR video games
  • Exploring the depths of Youtube
  • A VR experience created by groups of young people in Toxteth and Dingle
  • Learning about the future of language
  • Flying into space and discover new planets, flowers and animals in a beautifully drawn VR experience.
The students will become adventurers following a map, and they'll be guided through its potential meanings and the artists' ideas behind it. On top of that we offer a free 45 minute workshop where students will learn about VR filmmaking and be able to create their own VR film inspired by the artwork. We'll provide all the props, costumes and filming kit! If you are interested in enhancing specific areas of the curriculum give us a shout and we'll prepare a workshop that adapts to your needs. If you are not able to come to FACT, we can look into bringing the workshop into your classroom (for free) as well, so let us know! The tour + workshop visit is 1h 30m long. We can adapt times to your needs. Maximum 35 students per group. If you have any other queries please email carlos.marfil@fact.co.uk.

I can plan, organise and deliver a bespoke workshop for your school based on your needs and requirements working with, for example, one year or a whole key stage. The outcome, of course, is for pupils to write their very own story. Examples of recent themes we have worked on with children include scary stories leading up to Halloween, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and for spring 2020, detective stories. In 2018 I also ran poetry workshops in 10 schools as part of the Wilfred Owen Commemoration. I hold an enhanced DBS certificate and have recently attended further safeguarding training.

After a quick assembly sharing our love of poetry and issuing the overall challenge, children will participate in collaborative writing workshops, usually for a year group at a time. Using our unique “RunAround” methodology, KS2 classes will choose the themes and content, creating the lines as they go - with EYFS and KS1 providing the chorus. And the outcome? A beautifully crafted poem extolling the wonder of stories that’s unique to your school - and that will get its very first performance at a second, celebratory assembly at the end of the day!

We provide a free staff development workshop and provide school with a Help DVD that has over 1300 children's pictures from previous projects on it plus huge amounts of help and guidance that schools can keep. We can show both traditional art and also have a specialist Street Art service which is in huge demand as schools tell us that this really engages the children in art and stimulates their interest in art. Following our workshop each child produces a piece of artwork and we collect, label and frame each piece. We then return to school on an agreed date and turn the hall into an Art Gallery for the day, setting up all the children's framed artwork on our special display boards so that children and parent can see their artwork in it's authentic setting and have a fantastic finale to their project. The exhibition has a major effect on children's self esteem. School can raise money if they wish to by selling the pictures to parents - take up rates are very high.

In a bespoke space filled with objects to inspire and hundreds of books to read, your class will experience Shared Reading, book talk, story building, crafts and imaginative play, even creating your own tale to take back to the classroom with you!

The session will be very hands-on and the participants will alternately work in different roles: presenter, camera operator, sound recordist, director, etc. We can base the sessions around either the video equipment available in the school, or around our own workshop equipment. We will develop the contents of the session together with the teacher(s)/school, to make sure it aligns as best as possible with how they are planning to use video making in their lessons.
