November sees the return of Homotopia Festival, an exciting new art exhibition, international music and more!
1. Homotopia Festival (1 – 20 November)
Founded in 2004, Homotopia Festival returns from 1 – 20 November 2022. The Liverpool LBGTQIA arts organisation’s theme for this year’s festival is ‘Queer Joy Is A Protest’. “We’re tired of being angry. The simple act of living our most fabulous, out and proud queer lives, just the act of being ourselves in a cis-heteronormative world, is a protest.”
The festival will feature a wide range of arts and cultural events happening across Liverpool and online for the next three weeks bringing their vibrancy and inclusivity to the city.
2 Art of the Terraces (5 November – 12 March 2023)
This is ground-breaking new exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery, combining fashion, football and art, as told from the terraces of the stadiums. Art of the Terraces is the first major exhibition to tell the story of a movement that defined sports culture of the 1970s, 80s and 90s.
3. Kinaara (9 November)
LEAF on Bold Street will play host to Leeds trio Kinaara. The perfect backdrop to a dark, candlelit night with friends and family, LEAF’s bohemian atmosphere sets the scene for the band’s unique ‘Punjabi meets Western’ musical style.
4. Winter Arts Market Online (18 November – 31 December)
Open Culture’s Winter Arts Market is heading online this year. Following the disappointing news that they are unable to host the Winter Arts Market at Liverpool Cathedral they have created a alternative offer for artists and makers to promote their businesses this Christmas. Shoppers can browse from 200 independent sellers to buy some amazing and unique Christmas presents and treat themselves while they’re at it! Visit winterartsmarket.com now to start shopping.
5. Black Hole – End of Time (18 – 20 November)
Black Hole – End of Time is a large format immersive spatial light art experience. Using spectacular lasers, lighting, projections and special effects, synchronised to a striking, ear-tickling soundtrack. Back by popular demand, over three nights, Black Hole – End of Time will again mesmerise and enthral and if you felt like you were in Blade Runner in 2021, in 2022 you can add 2001 A Space Odyssey to the list.
