This year has been tough on venues. The long standing Masque announced it would close. I shot my first gig photos there many years ago. That was quite a shock. Just as shocking was the news that the CUC would also close. There’s a good article on Seven Streets about what the closure of a means to Liverpool. It’s been just over a year since the Conservation Centre closed. Another shocking closure. The Conservation Centre was one of Liverpool’s dedicated photography exhibition spaces. The other being the Open Eye which recently re-opened to huge success. I saw some fantastic photography there in recent years. It’s loss to the city was huge and saddening because they focused on Liverpool through photography. Where do you go for that now? Oh well. Here’s to 2012 and hopefully better days.

One thought on “ The Conservation Centre ”

  1. A very nice montage. Sadly, the arts are the first to suffer when civic budgets are trimmed. Unfortunately, art, which is vital to the well being of the community, both fiscally and culturally, is not recognized by the boffins entrusted with administering public funds. It’s easier to cut funding, which is meager at best, from programs that are not so visible to the public at large, than to slash pet projects that may have dubious benefits.
