Artist Call Out

Liverpool City Region Cultural Events are working with imagineer and artistic director Orit Azaz to collaborate on an exciting project in 2022/23. As part of a national action research project, Bridge2Bamboo will inform the development and creation of a new piece of public artwork for the city region in 2023.

Liverpool City Region Cultural Events are seeking up to twelve artists / makers / engineers / facilitators / community architects / sculptors who live and/or work in the Liverpool City Region to take part in this exciting project.

What is Bridge2Bamboo?

Bridge2Bamboo 2022 builds on research and development involving artists, communities and partners in 2021 and works towards potential for large scale participatory public art, engineering and performance projects, inviting communities across a city / town/ region to co-design and build a giant and beautiful temporary structure, a new space for people to come together and share experiences, before taking the component materials back to their neighbourhoods to create extraordinary outdoor structures for use in their communities.

All structures will be made from bamboo, widely held to be the future sustainable building material for the planet and the focus is on working with bamboo that either does or could grow in the UK.

Who are Imagineer Productions?

Our Vision: “To create extraordinary outdoor and site – specific work at the intersection of art engineering and educational and social change transforming lives and living in the collective memory forever. To discover ‘Imagineers’ of the future and create the conditions and environment for them to flourish.”
