Little Liverpool Designers

In September 2009 National Museums Liverpool and Liverpool ECHO in the Community held a competition to appoint a class from a Merseyside-based school as Little Liverpool Designers.

The winning class were Class R from Kingsley Community School in Toxteth. Over the following year they worked with an artist to direct the final development of artwork for the Little Liverpool children's gallery in the Museum of Liverpool.

In 2010 a group of 11-14 year olds from the Redi Project were appointed as our Atrium Artists, following a competition in the Liverpool Echo. They worked with professional artist Faith Bebbington to creating a bold, striking and fun piece of contemporary artwork for the museum's atrium.

Liverpool ECHO in the Community

National Museums Liverpool worked with the Liverpool Echo on this project supporting organisations and community groups across Merseyside.

Liverpool ECHO in the Community focused on supporting worthwhile initiatives that cover a broad spectrum of activities. These included sport, arts, culture and education that help inspire young people and their families to improve social skills, confidence, vision and teamwork.
