These venues have all served as points of inspiration to us over the past few years. After the closure of the Kazimier, the team behind the Invisible Wind Factory took it upon themselves to diversify their events and venue offer by opening a 1,000 capacity space on Liverpool's North Docks, with additional studio and workshop space for an eclectic range of tenants. This move was one that has since inspired the opening of other cultural locations around this area and sparked a whole new movement in North Liverpool towards repurposing disused spaces. Their events programme is a celebration of alt-cultural identity and their open-minded ethos is welcoming to all ideas and people.

24 Kitchen Street is another venue that has both benefited and felt issues from the increasing popularity of the Baltic Triangle. As a community, we all continue support each other with information sharing, equipment borrowing and shouting about each other's events. It is the Baltic ethos after all and 24 Kitchen Street is undoubtedly a huge promoter of the importance of cultural community and cohesive action in Liverpool.

Also situated on the North Docks, we've watched Meraki grow from across town into a hugely influential venue. With a forward thinking events programme, one that has included the likes of Moodymann and Josey Rebelle, the team behind this venue have taken all that they learnt as promoters and poured it into a truly unique mould. Who else has the adventurous mind-set to place some of electronic music's biggest artists into a 150 capacity room!? Having hosted their first ever events at Constellations as promoters, it's heartwarming to see the Meraki crew grow event-on-event into an important part of Liverpool's musical, cultural and creative community.

As it has repeatedly been identified by the LCC Music Strategy and the independent reports that formulated the Liverpool Music City research, interconnectivity between different cultural organisations in Liverpool has been lacking in previous years. This offer of support shows how our community can come together to navigate difficult situations and we hope to see this support network grow throughout the formation and future of the Liverpool Music Board and beyond.

About our Kickstarter

At the end of 2019, Constellations will close its doors for the final time. We're crowd funding to raise the funds required to move full time into a new venue, helping to continue providing Liverpool with much needed event space in which to be creative.

We're aiming for a target of £60,000 to help finalise building works on Hinterlands, our latest venture situated over in the Cains Brewery Village.

Haven't been yet? We're throwing a FREE August Bank Holiday party in collaboration with Smirnoff and our neighbours, SORT Rehearsal Rooms. More information here.
