A while ago HOP emailed around details of a crowdfunder project called Liam Gallagher is my Grandad. Artist and performer Scottee was looking for funding to teach his Grandad how to be a contemporary artist, to draw attention to the way older people are so often overlooked in society. Making a request which I don’t think we see often enough in arts funding applications, Liam insisted that some of the money would have to be spent on lemonade.
We were thrilled when Scottee and Liam reached their fundraising target, and the project now has a website where new work is posted as it is made. And Liam is now on twitter, where he occasionally takes questions from members of the public.
