Looking back to look forwarD

Collective Encounters celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Since 2004 we have been working across Liverpool City Region and beyond to centre the unheard stories of the communities who shape the region’s grassroots culture, through a time of huge political and social change.

Using money raised by National Lottery players, The National Lottery Heritage Fund supports projects that connect people and communities with the UK’s heritage. Radical Retrospectives is made possible with The National Lottery Heritage Fund. The project, will document and contextualise the stories of marginalised individuals and communities within the Liverpool City Region, and look at the next chapters for the future.

Are you:

• A current or former participant of our projects?

• Someone who’s worked with us in any capacity?

• Involved with one of our many partner organisations or funders?

• Or just interested in radical culture?

If so, we want to hear from you!

We are hosting two launch events for people to come and find out more about this project, how you can get involved, and how you can play a role in shaping it:


ONLINE EVENT – MONDAY 10TH JUNE: 18.00 – 20.00
