Are you using your requisite number of words per day? Enjoy the arts and music scene of Liverpool? Want to build a portfolio of writing work? Have experience of blogging or journalism?
Threshold is a multi-arts festival in its sixth year that showcases the best of the local arts and music scene of Liverpool in one mega, three day festival in the Baltic Triangle. This year’s festival takes place between Friday April 1st and Sunday April 3rd in its home of the Baltic Triangle and with so much talent and originality to see we want to record as much of it as possible.
In the past few years we’ve used the Official Threshold Blog to document the music, visual art, performance and other strands of the festival and we’re looking for people with a creative flair and good writing abilities to help capture the essence of our wonderful festival in 2016.
If you fit any of the criteria below then we’d love to have you on board: You enjoy the grassroots level music scene of Liverpool (and even beyond) with a wide knowledge of music genres and types. Have experience, (even a little, as guidance will be given), of producing music, art or performance reviews with an ability to stick to deadlines and word counts. Be able to cover at least one day of the festival.
The festival takes place in The Baltic Triangle, Liverpool over three days from the evening of April 1st to the evening of April 3rd. Sound good? Please get in contact via email@example.com with more information about yourself, including two examples of your work relating to a musical or cultural topic.
2012 Liverpool Art Prize winner Robyn Woolston returns to the Threshold Festival with House of Sound, her most immediately moving piece yet.
Robyn was gifted a library of 1,000 analogue cassette tapes by an anonymous donor and has created an art installation that’s as arresting and intimate as its surroundings in 90 Squared’s exhibition space. Robyn says she chose the location because of the climb up the castle-like stairs and the space itself. When I asked about the difference between this exhibition and her more large-scale installations, Robyn told me
It’s funny, I love the really big spaces, but the smaller a space can be, the more intimate your conversation is with the work”
And House of Sound is beautifully intimate. It tells the story of human life and a human life through the collection of cases. A smaller and less immediate offshoot of the gorgeous, bright, rainbow-hued central piece is dedicated to the anonymous donor.
This installation will tell its own tale to each and every person who views it as it takes its very deserved place at the heart of this year’s Threshold FUTURE | VISIONS celebration of art.
You can find House of Sound from 28 to 30 March 2014 at 90 Squared above the Baltic Social on Parliament Street.

This weekend Johny and I doubled up as bloggers for this year’s Threshold Festival. Now in its third year, Threshold is a grass roots celebration of emerging talent in the fields of art and music. Johny and I joined the massive team of hard working and dedicated volunteers without whom there would be no Festival.
We dashed from venue to venue and even the horrible endless rain couldn’t dampen our spirits or those of the Festival goers around the Baltic Triangle and the Albert Dock.
We saw some brilliant live music, some fantastic art and great discussion panels. Read all about it on the Thresholds official blog. Links below.
