On Coping: A Reading for Liverpool
It’s time to work together and find new strategies. What can we learn through empathy, prophecies, tarot and speculation? What systems are available to us to hijack and redirect value? As the elite closes in, let’s create our own spaces for autonomy and creative production.

Golden Age Problems
Energy is only ever amassed collectively and so for any real transformation to take place we must not work alone. Let's dispense with notions of success and failure, and imagine alternative, independent entertainment formats.
Looking back to 2016 – for the 10 year anniversary of Tower Hamlets Arts and Music Education Service, members of our Young Artists Programme had the opportunity to curate and exhibit their own work and the work of other young people at @barbicancentre as part of an incredible day of events. Really excited to be working with the Young Artists Programme through the next year on more projects in the borough.

opti-ME*
opti-ME* is a month-long exhibition and event series bringing together a selection of creative workers to interrogate the role of the artist, both as model for radical change and as self-promotional strategist. Exploring different types of artistic agency and modes of (identity) production, invited collaborators will occupy a transformed Auto Italia space, using it as an experimental testing-ground for new work and proposals, and questioning what "being artist" might mean as their skills and production methods become increasingly embedded across other industries.
