MP Steve Rotheram meets the Blue Room.


Steve Rotheram, MP for Walton, has commended the Bluecoat’s Blue Room project for its positive work supporting learning disabled participants to travel independently to the Bluecoat each week for art activities.

The MP visited the Bluecoat today (Thu 12 April '12) to look at the Blue Room’s work as part of Art:Connect – a seven week collaborative art project with Mexican based artist Wendell McShine.

Blue Room is an award-winning arts service for people with learning disabilities operating three days a week at the Bluecoat in partnership with Liverpool City Council.  The Blue Room members include Alfred and Donald (pictured) who took part in ART:Connect to make impressive animations, models, drawings and masks.

MP Steve Rotheram said: “This is a great project which successfully breaks down barriers for learning disabled people in accessing the arts.”
