Company description
Display Centre Director, Maureen Bampton and her team, continually endeavour to present new and challenging work and an annual series of changing exhibitions in a setting that is welcoming and inspiring. The creative programme is supported by a series of artist-led workshop and talks, often by artists and makers who exhibit in the gallery.
The Bluecoat Display Centre originated as one of this country's earliest craft galleries in 1959. The founder of the Display Centre; Robert Gardner-Medwin, Professor of Architecture at Liverpool University, aimed to promote and display the work of leading designers of the time from a large studio in the Bluecoat Chambers. His ethos continues today, as a non profit distributing organisation promoting the finest contemporary craftwork by leading designer/makers.

Gardner-Medwin intended the work shown at the Display Centre to enhance good architecture and interior design and today we find we are still the place that leading professionals involved in Liverpool’s renaissance visit to achieve this.
The Bluecoat Display Centre seeks to inform and inspire all members of the community with an engaging programme of talks, workshops, exhibitions and residencies connected to the applied arts and crafts.

Our exhibitions cover the full spectrum of contemporary making from the traditional to the cutting edge, with learning at the core of the exhibition programme. To promote and enable an understanding of contemporary applied art and craft we include in our education programme the following:
Interpretation panels written to enhance the visitor’s experience and to inform students of art and design regarding the curatorial considerations of exhibitions and the backgrounds of the participating artists.

Copies of the information, artists’ CVs etc. are available to the public.
