Photographers and artists invited to Deane Road Cemetery in Liverpool
PHOTOGRAPHERS and artists are invited to a Liverpool cemetery to capture its unique features. Some of the leading entrepreneurs from Liverpool’s history are buried at Deane Road Jewish cemetery, in Kensington. Plans are being developed to restore the cemetery using lottery money. They include a visitors centre, formal garden and improved Grade II-listed entrance and walls.
Organisers said the art and photography project was a chance for people to get involved in the lottery bid. Participants will be asked to create work based on the cemetery and unique history. Their work may be displayed this autumn. The first open day for photographers and artists to visit the cemetery takes place tomorrow from 10am to 3pm. A guided tour will be held at 10.30am.
