Coronavirus COVID-19 - Information for our participants & audience

It is with great sadness that we have to postpone all of our public activities for the foreseeable future due to the COVID-19 outbreak. 

The West Coast Photo Festival including all exhibitions, which was due to launch this Friday 20th March, will be postponed. As soon as the outlook is clearer we will reschedule.

All other public workshops including Seeing the North with Sankey and our youth programme (Get Digital, Signal Starters and Cooke’s Crew) are currently on hold. We are looking for ways of providing activities remotely and will be in touch and/or announce developments shortly.

The office will be not be open to the public but staff will continue to work remotely.

We will continue to follow the latest advice as directed from Public Health England and Department for Health – Coronavirus (COVID-19) latest information and advice – -information-for-the-public
