We support a growing membership of over 40 artists to access full day inclusive arts sessions each week. Members develop creative and social skills, building confidence and greater independence. Through our studio programme, we are supporting Blue Room members to develop their own practice as visual and dance artists through mentoring and skills development. Membership of Blue Room has also led to supported volunteering opportunities with Out of the Blue, our programme of after school art clubs in local primary schools.
The groups have access to unique resources such as Bluecoat Print Studio and collaborate with local and international contemporary artists. These partnerships have lead to a number of performances and exhibitions, including Expanding the Picture and Studio Me.
Blue Room are an integral part of the creative community at Bluecoat and cultural life in the city, supported by a dedicated team of facilitators and volunteers. You'll often find members at exhibition launches and events at Bluecoat.
Blue Room at Halton
In 2018 we started a new Blue Room group at Norton Priory Museum & Gardens in Runcorn. Together, the group explore the heritage of Norton Priory and create contemporary art inspired by the natural landscape of the grounds.
