In Autumn 2006, A Foundation launched Greenland Street - three former industrial buildings, which have been transformed into inspiring and challenging gallery spaces, which retain their historic character and industrial heritage. Located in the heart of Liverpool's old port area and moments from the River Mersey, Greenland Street comprises of The Coach Shed, The Furnace and The Blade Factory.
All three buildings have recently undergone a two phase programme of redevelopment works, which has improved access and created a centralised café and reception space, alongside the provision of disabled toilets. In 2007, A Foundation plans to further develop Greenland Street with the creation of five studio spaces and a specialist arts bookshop.
Greenland Street's mission is to deliver programmes of activity that showcase the very best local, regional, national and international contemporary visual arts practice and we focus on commissioning up to four major new projects each year. In addition to our visual arts programmes, A Foundation also delivers an annual architecture commission, which profiles emerging architects whose hybrid practices reference both art and architecture, and an education and outreach programme which aims to provide a wide range of participants with the opportunity to look at, talk about and make art.
