2015 Visible Award: Temporary Parliament

31 October 2015 at 11.00–18.00

Come and join the open jury consultation in the form of a temporary parliament that will decide who is awarded the 2015 Visible Award.  The curators of the Visible Project, Matteo Lucchetti and Judith Wielander, Tate Liverpool’s Artistic Director, Francesco Manacorda with the advocate Dr Andrea Philipps and members of the jury will lead an open public debate in the Council Chamber in Liverpool Town Hall - a perfect setting for a public ‘parliamentary’ debate and then cast your vote!

The prize of 25,000 euros will be awarded at the end of the debate and the session will end with a video call with the winner.
