'Reclaim Your Space' was an exhibition of 71 works by talented young people, displayed at the Walker Art Gallery and World Museum. Themes including identity, diversity and environment are explored, giving a voice to topics and issues deemed relevant by local young people today.

Works in watercolour, acrylic, photography, collage, mixed media and recycled materials were featured, bringing an eclectic feel to the display.

Highlights included a colourful portrait of pop star Rihanna and a painting depicting the city’s top cultural attractions peppered with contruction and roadwork signs.

'Reclaim Your Space' gave emerging artists from local schools an extraordinary opportunity to exhibit in venues that house rare artefacts and world-class masterpieces.

The scheme was part of Liverpool City Region’s Find Your Talent pathfinder, a government initiative which aims to get young people into creative and cultural activities.
