Show of Photography: Handel’s Gallery Northgate Street

David Brown, his show will be for one month and will run from the 15th March until the 15th April.
Make Space CIC  is a developing community for people in the North West who are looking for more joy, fulfilment and soul-full-ness in their lives. A place where like-minded people can share inspiration, ideas and joy! There will be speakers, workshops, events, meditation and much more, and we launch in March!
We have Nick Williams coming to Liverpool for the very first time to speak on inspiration and what it means for each of us, and on Friday 21st Nick is leading an intimate lunch and workshop, enabling us to ‘dig deeper’ into where we find inspiration personally and how we inspire others. It’s going to be a wonderful time and I hope people will come and join in, and support this new venture.
