I recently went to see the 'Knowledge Lives Everywhere exhibition at FACT.
"Knoledge Lives Everywhere places these unique projects and ideas at the heart of the FACT building, turning FACT into a playground of ideas, and a space that showcases the collaborations between artists, thinkers, communities and individuals."
The exhibition had several areas, the first being a media lounge, where the viewer is invited to not only listen to stories told by people in Merseyside, but to also leave their own responses and stories. The area is dressed like a house and the audience can share their own stories by writing them down in a book, typing them on an old typewriter, or recording them on a telephone.
'The Social Playground' was made by local community groups in collaboration with the artist collective Aberrant Architecture, and contains seven interactive architectural pieces which each explores a different part of FACTs Collaboration Programme and its relationship to the city.
