Welcome to Liverpool

The conference is being organised by the University of Liverpool, and will be held at the Friends House, Liverpool.

Liverpool is an exciting and vibrant city with more galleries and museums than any city outside London. Liverpool is an ‘art-lovers’ paradise – from old masters in the Walker Art Gallery and modern masterpieces in Tate Liverpool, to cutting-edge film, photography and visual arts at FACT, the Open Eye Gallery and the Bluecoat, which is next door to the conference venue.
