Space to Create - Unity Theatre

Space to Create is our free rehearsal and development programme for Liverpool artists. We dedicate at least 12 weeks of free space per year for artists to create, collaborate and record their work.

The programme is temporarily on hold as we comply with the National Lockdown in place. To be the first to hear when applications open please sign-up to our Creative Membership.

Once the building is reopen and we all begin to readjust to offline working, in offering our building up for free as a space to create, explore and rediscover our art, we acknowledge the resilience shown by artists throughout this time and look forward to working with you towards an exciting future.
