With any street, even a few yards of a street, stopping to pause, look at details reveals another level of the street’s life. The images in the slideshow are taken on Hope Street or in Arrad Street which runs behind and which contains the home of Liverpool Theatre Network. Sean writes:

Come gather round people wherever you roam and loan your ego to the brothers and sisters 

Who passionately find joy in the backstreets of Hope

Ladies and gentlemen this is Network theatre. 

Established in Orwells ’84’ fifty years after the birth of its ancestor ‘Merseyside Left theatre group’, Network was created after the closure of ‘Merseyside Unity Theatre ‘ and strives every Tuesday to continue encouragement, participation, performance and innovative theatrical writing for Liverpool.

Hope Street Peeps

Posted: October 6, 2011 in people, Uncategorized

Visit the great new site Hope Street Peeps. The Spiderphoto group went out with lights and cameras onto Hope Street and took pictures of some of the people they met. A street, a place, at any one time is more to do with the people than the stones and glass, and this site catches the variety of people who contribute to the street, the city, humanity.
