This document outlines the guidelines for the inclusion of Public Art onto the transport network within Merseyside, and was revised in 2010 to ensure that it is up to date and fit for purpose. Since the success of the European Capital of Culture Year 2008, Liverpool has repositioned itself as a vibrant, safe and welcoming City and we feel that it is important this is reflected onto the transport network. Merseytravel believes the Public Art Strategy will prove a vital tool towards achieving this goal. Over the last few years the Public Art programme has gone from strength to strength seeing some high profile pieces of Public Art being installed on the network from Ken Dodd and Bessie Braddock at Lime Street to Amazing Grace at Pier Head Ferry Terminal. Merseytravel strongly believes that art, culture and accessibility are important policy areas that will shape the region, contribute toward the economic regeneration, and to the City Regions appeal as a tourist destination. But most importantly improve the journey experience for our passengers. Art on the Network – Aims and Objectives •Creating a safe and stimulating environment for the travelling public. •Contribute toward the regeneration of the City Region, enhancing our facilities and infrastructure, giving them a unique quality. •Engage with local communities and businesses to help build stronger communities instilling a sense of pride and ownership. •Providing public art that is accessible to all. •Contribute toward the cultural identity, reflect and respond to theme of people and place both past and present. •Enriching the everyday travel experience, making it an experience all of its own.
