‘pool works with communities looking at the ecology and social dynamics of their spaces using walks, picnics, celebrations, conferrings and positive documentation, in the belief that creative fun and laughter help to solve problems.
‘pool project is actively creating a legacy for the city that has forgotten its namesake. We aim to explore, reveal and celebrate the origins of the city of Liverpool and in so doing contemplate and influence the city’s destiny.
Liverpool’s namesake, the tidal pool, is now an invisible changing of tidal water levels underground from the Strand up to Paradise Street and Whitechapel.
The boats used to tie up where the Queens Tunnel now takes us under the Mersey.
Manchester Street and Dale Street follow the shape of the bay made by the meeting of the salt water and the sweet stream, down what is now William Brown Street.
The city is committed in the world heritage management plan to a project to remember the tidal pool. ‘pool project gives a culturally unique identity to Liverpool’s historic core.
