September 2017 - The Bluecoat Story

this month's story

Celebrating 300 years of the The Bluecoat in Liverpool, this is a special collaboration of 5 stories, spanning those 300 years.

Originally established as The Bluecoat School, for the orphaned children of seafaring families, the building has been artist studios, home of the University of Liverpool School of Architecture, and is now the leading Arts Centre for Liverpool.
Artists who have exhibited there range from Picasso to Yoko Ono. Stravinsky perfomed there and the Bluecoat has been at the heart of cutting edge artistic developments over the last 100 years of its history.
Today it is the oldest building in the city centre and a much loved institution.
