This is an Arts Council of England funded community art project launched as part of Liverpool Independents Biennial 2021. It was dreamt up by Dr Alan Dunn to celebrate some hidden narratives around three Liverpool City Region locations near where he lives on the Wirral peninsula – Spital, New Ferry and Port Sunlight. He invited artists The Singh Twins, Malik Al Nasir, Steve & Phaedra Hardstaff and Joseph Cotgrave to research the areas, chatted with locals and edited stories down to FOUR WORDS that encourage us all to look beyond the surfaces.

Our FOUR WORDS are now ready to appear using the camera on your mobile device, developed with Field in Sheffield. We have made thirty of them ready to come alive using Augmented Reality (AR) and have listed them by artist or community.

Click on the FOUR WORDS and then choose your real-world location to see them appear, take a screengrab and then share with the whole world using the hashtag:
