Liverpool is a city of rich culture and heritage. But what does it mean to be a young person growing up in this city? DaDaFest is pleased to announce we have been awarded Heritage Lottery funding (HLF) for an exciting project called Recipe for Scouse: the heritage ingredients of our unique Liverpool identity.
We are thrilled that the Walker Art Gallery (National Museums Liverpool) will be our heritage partner for this project.
A group of Young Disabled people from Merseyside have led on the project development and will continue to make key decisions. They will explore and re-interpret the ‘ingredients’ of Liverpool’s cultural and historical identity, reflecting how these have evolved over time, and contribute to their own identities today.
The project is part of our on-going programme to empower young people through training and practical experience in the Arts. Improving their self-confidence, skills and qualifications to increase their future choices.
