Grassroots Growth: co-creating solutions for the 2020s.
We’ll be flinging open the doors of Make. North Docks extra wide and invite any imagineers working on projects, ventures and ideas focused on unleashing a better us – a better Liverpool – to all come together in the same space. Creatives, activists, entrepreneurs, dreamers, scientists, makers and doers, everyone is welcome to come along to add their vision of a better Liverpool.
