as creatives


We are a multi-arts provider and consultancy based on Merseyside, and a tireless advocate for the transformative powers of the arts and artistic approaches.

Our ethos founded on an understanding that people are at their most productive when their creativity is allowed to flourish. We put our advocacy into action by designing and delivering high quality, engaging arts programmes and resources expressly developed to engage people and allow them to grow through sharing ideas and experiences – and gaining new skills.

We work with primary and secondary schools, universities, local authorities, cultural organisations and community groups. We also run our own exciting after-school and holiday multi-arts clubs for children and young people, The Extraordinary World of Making Stuff!

Simon McKeown - Director and Visual Artist
My facilitation skills have been developed over the past ten years in working with young people and adults in a wide variety of arts and educational programmes. As a practicing visual artist, I bring my expertise in creative processes to enable the people I work with to develop their own creativity and to communicate their ideas in interesting ways. I love making stuff, and working with others to make stuff!

The Best Thing About the Baltic Triangle
Since opening an office in what was the Contemporary Urban Centre in 2010, we’ve been committed to remaining in the Baltic Triangle. Why? Because it’s a hubbub of like-minded and creative people, businesses and communities. Jung was right, Liverpool is the pool of life – and the Baltic Triangle is right at the wellspring.
