4Wings Northwest CIC*
At 4Wings we believe, we are all creative, but not all have access to cultural spaces. 4Wings aims to work with artists and a variety of organisations to remove these barriers. More inclusive cultural spaces provide access and a sense of belonging and ownership to socially excluded people.
4Wings exhibits paintings that were created by 4Wings members during our creative programmes. The paintings tell the stories of home, identity and of people’s connections, they express memories and hopes for the future. On their journey, visitors will meet the avatars of the women who make 4Wings the multicultural and welcoming organisation it is.
SAE Institute provides a niche creative media programme from short courses and professional training through to bachelor and postgraduate degrees with more than 50 campuses around the world.
The VR artwork in this exhibition was created by the 2nd Years Game Art and Animation students at SAE Institute Liverpool Campus.
The Royal Standard Art Gallery*
The Royal Standard is Liverpool’s oldest and largest artist-led studio and gallery designed by artists for artists and is an exciting partner in this cross-sector cooperation.
The 3 organisations together validate the impact of cross-sector partnerships, while demonstrating innovation, social conscience and inclusivity.
