This course has given me the confidence in myself to pursue a career I’ve always dreamed of, helping me get my foot on the ladder into the world of make-up and SFX, giving me opportunities I would have struggled to get by myself. it has also created network links with like-minded women that has grew into beautiful friendships too’

The project is supported by the PH Holt Foundation, Eleanor Rathbone Trust, Culture Liverpool and The Arts Council and is part of a wider project which involves a new performance celebrating extraordinary women from history, and debate about gender at venues across the North.


LIFE IN STATIC  is our project during lockdown. It is  a grapevine of creativity, each participant responding to the theme and passing their response along to inspire the next one. We look forward to sharing the outcome from this talented group of young women!
