The Memorial for Misused Time

  • 19 May 2017 5-10pm

In this talk, philosopher Dr. Michelle Bastian (Edinburgh College of Art) discusses clock-time and its possibilities for being redesigned. Exploring examples of how artists, activists and designers have remade the clock, she asks whether clock-making could be opened up to non-experts and used to explore the conflicting times of our everyday lives. What kind of time would you want a clock to tell? Dr. Bastian’s talk will be followed by a special guest panel discussion and an audience Q&A.
Takes place in the Hall of Remembrance.

A Living Timeline

  • 19 May 2017 5-10pm

An exhibition of Merseyside’s rich and potent history across centuries and decades. Live actors taking on the roles of historical figures tell you their stories
creating a walk-through, interactive timeline from Cilla Black to the Beatles, ghosts from the Albert Dock and the memories ingrained in the cobbled streets and brick work of this multicultural city. Come and learn from the characters themselves, and even bring a story or two of your own!

Bring your own photographs and memorabilia to weave into the exhibition and mark your own place in history, or have your portrait snapped to bring the timeline right up to now.

Your family’s history is Liverpool’s history. Every photo, artefact, piece of furniture or item of clothing from every generation has a past, and holds a story waiting to be unearthed…
