And These Birds Can Sing

And These Birds Can Sing

Part of our ‘Very Public Art’ commission, And These Birds Can Sing by artist Katy Anne Bellis is a magical sound installation of colourful bird boxes situated in the grounds of St. Nicholas’s Church.

Created by The Birdcage Stage in collaboration with Hope Street Harmonies and We Want Women, the artwork is a celebration of female/female identifying singers, poets and musicians in Liverpool.

Our Very Public Art commissions are a celebration of outdoor, public art taking place across Liverpool’s Quarters comissioned by Culture Liverpool and supported by Arts Council England.
