Liverpool ONE Culture Partners
Liverpool is home to a vast array of cultural organisations ranging from its museums and galleries to its many theatres, performing arts organisations, heritage, community groups and of course, plentiful events and festivals.
At Liverpool ONE we recognise the importance of culture and the role it plays in bringing people together. Culture helps to foster a sense of pride, shared experiences and serves as a way for communication and expression.
Culture is expressed through music, art, fashion, sport, literature, language and other forms to convey experiences and emotions that are relatable to others. Culture allows people to celebrate, learn about others and brings significant positive impact to health and wellbeing.
Culture is at the heart of the visitor experience at Liverpool ONE
We believe by giving people the opportunity to explore, interact and understand different cultural experiences, encourages and promotes inclusiveness, discovery and positivity.
The sense of community that cultural experiences bring creates the togetherness and pride that we believe unites people and creates a togetherness that can be hard to find in an increasingly remote world.
We are proud to partner with many groups and organisations, hosting hundreds of performances and installations each and every year. These culture partners bring a uniqueness to the visitor experience and celebrate various aspects of culture, including, heritage, music, art, literature and different traditions.
What is a Culture Partner?
A Culture Partner is a group or organisation who is keen to promote and celebrate culture through display or performance at Liverpool ONE.
Individuals or organisations who are keen to collaborate with Liverpool ONE would be selected based on a willingness to understand our aims and ambitions ‘to make our visitors smile’.
We foster a collaborative partnership based on mutual respect and a shared intention to positively contribute to the visitor experience whilst realising positive social impact, wellbeing and inclusion.
Culture Partners benefit from a step by step guidance on delivering activity in public spaces safely and effectively, the chance to display and perform in high footfall areas across Liverpool ONE and the benefit of in-house marketing and PR support.
It can be anything from displaying artworks in one of our designated areas in Liverpool ONE and hosting an exhibition here to branding our Tickle the Ivories pianos and doing a pop up performance at Liverpool ONE.
