art + power organises a range of arts and partnership projects. We want our art to go all around the world and have had many exhibitions and performances both locally and nationally including Tate Liverpool, Bristol Old Vic, Sadlers’ Wells, Birmingham, Manchester, London and as far a field as Madrid. Our poetry has even been read at festivals in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, and Tokyo, Japan.
