Liverpool's artistic environment never was understated, a reason it gained its CoC crown, but it is now a wash with new work created over a hectic last 12 months. Away from the headline-grabbing international venues, Liverpool became a myriad of studios, small galleries, house exhibitions, street art and almost anything happening at an exciting grass-roots level. To celebrate this high quantity and quality of fresh work, ‘Fear and Optimism' seeks to propel 24 multi-disciplinary artists onto a three month long tour of galleries in Sheffield, Durham and Halifax.
