5 Days in Liverpool – Day 2

This morning we took a bus tour around the local and wider areas with an illuminating commentary from Ian Brownbill. We were particularly interested in the success and failure of various attempts to regenerate the city and including the Edge Hill/Kensington area local to Metal Liverpool.

In the afternoon we had the pleasure of receiving a presentation from the one and only Lemn Sissay who shared some amazing words and ideas with us in a very performative way! Apart from his obvious and amazing talent, I was particularly impressed by his sheer enthusiasm for his own work and yet ability to stay open to questions and observations from the group.

We are all feeling quite saturated. Some have gone to another presentation this evening but I have chosen to stay in and reflect a little on the last two days, firstly by setting up this blog! More tomorrow…
