The UK’s newest centre for film, art and creative technology, opens to the public on 22 February 2003. It’s been seven years in the making. It cost Â£10m to develop, build and equip. It’s the first purpose-built arts project in Liverpool for over 60 years and it’s opening in the New Year! Make sure you’re first in line with FACT Membership.
For more than a decade FACT has operated as a pioneering agency in the exhibition, support and development of artists’ film and video and new media projects in the UK. From our Liverpool base we have commissioned more than 100 projects by British and international artists. Many of these projects have been showcased within the biennial event and other significant exhibitions organised by FACT, introducing north-west and UK audiences to high quality projects from across the globe.
But FACT is a lot more than a commissioning agency. Our groundbreaking has established creative partnerships between artists and hundreds of individuals and groups throughout Liverpool and the north-west. [The Moving Image Touring & Exhibition Service], established by FACT in 1992, provides specialist resources and support to artists and exhibitors working with the moving image and new media technologies. The training programme offers expert tuition and professional development opportunities to a wide range of artists and individuals working in new media and visual culture. Our facility has enabled dozens of UK galleries to present work to the highest possible standard and upgrade the exhibition experience of their audiences.
