  1. Curious Stories

    Really looking forward to seeing the work of some of our graduates exhibited in the Liverpool School of Art and Design again this week.

    Al Murphy (1999), Andrew Wightman (2000), Katie Harvey (2008) and Emily Alston (2004) have all contributed illustrations to the book Curious Stories for Curious Minds for Curious Minds - a charity that works in schools and other setting across the North West to make sure all children have access to quality arts and cultural learning activities.

    The concept for the book was devised by creative collective Dorothy in 2010 to help the charity raise awareness of the impact nurturing a child’s natural creativity and curiosity can have on helping them develop ‘life’ skills they can later rely on as adults. 

    46 unique and personal tales from famous and inspirational people have been collected together in the book and brought to life with illustrations and drawings from 15 illustrators including Steven Appleby (Loomus, The Guardian), Oliver Jeffers (Lost and Found) and our very own graduates.

    On Thursday 12th April a press launch for the book is being held between 6pm – 7.30pm at Liverpool School of Art and Design in the Public Exhibition Space. The event includes an exhibition of artwork from the book.
