In Liverpool, VIY is part of the ‘Creative Construction Programme’, which is a partnership between the City Council and Liverpool’s major art institutions such as the Playhouse, the Everyman Theatre and the Bluecoat art centre. The Programme engages young people ‘at risk’ in Liverpool to learn construction skills whilst working on creative projects with artists.
The young people have decided to build a bench, adventure playground facilities and a crazy golf area, giving a good scope for learning all kinds of varied structures and skills. The area will then also be decorated with flowers in areas, which incorporates bed boxes and is accessible to all ages.
