The Legend of the Mernix is a unique multimedia experience created collaboratively by the citizens and artists of Bootle, Birkenhead and Collective Encounters.

The story of the Mernix is as old as the wind. She was a glorious, winged fish, with golden beak and sapphire eyes, and while she lived in the river all were well and happy. But now the memory of the Mernix is faded into legend, and we live in dark times. Did she lay an egg? Could hope be reborn? Will you join the quest: help us restore hope in our communities?

If you are ready to accept the challenge, join us on social media and become part of the quest. You can follow the Legend of the Mernix on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

The countdown is on. Join the digital quest online.
