At a fabulous black tie event at Liverpool’s Town Hall on 30th October, attended by the cream of the region’s social enterprises, dot-art Services CIC was announced as the Arts and Cultural Champion for 2015 by the Social Enterprise Network for Merseyside.
The SEN Powerful Together Awards recognise the Liverpool City Region’s most innovative social enterprises, for attributes such as creativity, growth and social advocacy. The annual awards have been taking place since 2012, and this year saw over 90 nominations received across all categories. The Arts and Cultural Champion award recognises the achievements of the creative sector in supporting communities to thrive through a range of creative mediums, and was awarded to dot-art in recognition of its varied programme of works in the visual arts.
Lucy Byrne, managing director of dot-art Services said:
“The dot-art team are absolutely delighted to win this award. Over the past few years we have developed a number of new projects which have had fantastic reach and impact across the region; perhaps most importantly the dot-art Schools programme which has given thousands of children the opportunity to see their work showcased online, and displayed over 120 of these works in public art galleries in Liverpool City Centre. We have ambitious growth plans for 2016 and I am confident the profile gained by winning this award will help us deliver these.”
