What we do
Hope Street develops artists, art forms and arts in the community by delivering innovative and participatory projects that initiate change and regenerate the cultural landscape of Liverpool and beyond. 

Hope Street provides professional development for emerging artists and theatre companies and produces cutting edge, cross artform performances that encourage established artists to work outside their comfort zone in unusual places and spaces.

Hope Street's community engagement programmes provide opportunities for vulnerable individuals and isolated communities. It aims to combat social exclusion and raise the standard and expectation of community arts.

Our core artistic programme comprises the unique Emerging Artists Programme and On the Verge.

Many former Hope Streeters have established award-winning companies, including Tmesis Theatre, Travelled CompanionsSpike Theatre, Big Wow, Random Acts of Wildness, Suitcase Ensemble and Petite Ullaloom.
