Art of Football: Terrace Tapestries

Thu 1 Jan

Thu 1 Jan

Come and join us & Foto Octo to help design and make banners to celebrate the culture of each country in the 2018 World Cup.

 

Art of Football is an arts programme being held here in Liverpool, to coincide with the World Cup. As part of the festival the Terrace Tapestries project is asking members of the 32 World Cup nations to come together to create 32 football banners – one for each of their countries (this could be words or imagery). The aim is to inspire the participants creatively and then to parade the banners through Liverpool City Centre to mark the start of the World Cup (14th June).

 

The creative workshops take place on the 12th May and 19th May here at The Florrie, 377 Mill Street, Liverpool, L8 4RF from 10-6pm.

We want as many people as possible to get involved with the project. After creating the banners the group will be invited to parade them through the streets of Liverpool on June 14th, after the conclusion of the first match in the World Cup 2018.

 

After the parade the banners will be put on display in Liverpool Museum’s Martin Luther King Jnr. educational centre in Liverpool’s Albert Dock for the duration of the World Cup, where they will provide inspiration for groups of school children to produce their own football art.

 

The project aims to inspire people artistically and also spread the message and understanding that we are not so different.

 

Each session will focus on a different set of banners covering all teams taking part in the 2018 World Cup.

 

12th May: France; Germany; Poland; Iceland; Egypt; Denmark; Russia; Tunisia; Australia; Sweden; Belgium; Portugal; Spain; Switzerland and Mexico.

 

19th May: Peru; Colombia; Saudi Arabia; South Korea; Serbia; Uruguay; Iran; Costa Rica; Senegal; Panama; Argentina; Nigeria; Morocco and Japan.
