Open Call 2021 was a huge success – with over 400 applications received from creatives and companies across all of Liverpool – but for Open Call 2022, we’re really keen to meet even more of you!

For Open Call 2022 we took the Unity Open Call on the road and out into the boroughs of Merseyside to speak with and shine a spotlight on the amazing creative people, organisations, venues and businesses across the whole region.


How culture can regenerate a high-street, artist confidence, training and education through the arts,


Every Wednesday during the Open Call application window, head to the Unity social media channels to see where we will be popping up that week and hear from the brilliant creative people in your area about what’s going on near you, why you should get involved and why you should apply.

Then every Tuesday, stayed tuned to our YouTube as we release weekly episodes of Creative Merseyside, showcasing the things we saw and people we met.
