On the Verge
On the Verge Festival is back in October 2017 - an exciting and dynamic festival, dedicated to supporting and showcasing provocative new work by emerging artists, presented in unusual places and spaces, across Liverpool from 18th to 22nd October 2017. 


On the Verge is presented by Hope Street Ltd, a Liverpool-based organisation with over 28 years’ experience of developing artists and artforms. On the Verge not only showcases new work, it’s also a programme during which the selected artists/companies will have access to a bespoke package of developmental support from Hope Street Ltd before, during and after the festival. This may take the form of creative production support, help with funding, creative mentoring, marketing and future planning. 

Previous years’ locations include a garden, a car, a museum, a street alley, an office, a hotel, a private residency and many more. It is up to the artist to specify the location or type of place for the work to be performed. Hope Street Ltd works with successful applicants as required, to secure the desired space. We look for the most exciting, edgy and innovative work by the next generation of performance makers and creators.

Liverpool is a city with so many festivals!
