Edge Hill Station, Tunnel Road
In Liverpool, Metal work from the iconic buildings of Edge Hill Station, the oldest active passenger railway station in the world. The original 1830s buildings now serve as a cultural and creative hub for artists and the surrounding neighbourhoods, carrying on the building’s proud history of innovation and creativity.
Metal believes that artists can affect change in our society, and to this end Metal Liverpool acts as a catalyst for art and artists to create innovative societal change. It is our goal to bring creative imagination and ideas to the neighbourhoods of Edge Hill, Kensington, Wavertree and Toxteth, creating a positive impact for the people living there.
Metal produces an exciting programme of international/UK artists in residence, artist development labs, eclectic dinners, plus a wide range of social events, education programmes and creative projects, all designed to encourage the participation of local people and communities.
Our buildings also house a number of artist’s studios and incubation space for start-up creative businesses.
