Publication Date 15 May 2008

Laurie Peake is Programme Director for Public Art at Liverpool Biennial. Laurie leads on the development of the commissioning programme as a catalyst in the regeneration of the city and sub-region, recently delivering Richard Wilson’s Turning the Place Over in Liverpool city centre and Antony Gormley’s installation Another Place on Crosby Beach. Laurie has over twenty years experience of facilitating collaborations between artists and public in the context of urban regeneration. Starting her career at the Tate Gallery in London, she was part of a small team that developed an innovative education and public programme at Tate Gallery Liverpool on the Albert Dock in what is often cited as the UK’s first regeneration project to use culture as its driver. She went on to develop a similarly successful programme at Camden Art Centre, London and followed this with a period as Visual Arts Officer at Arts Council, North West. Laurie came to Liverpool Biennial from Alsop Architects where she brought her experience to bear on the built environment, working with their urban visioning team on masterplans and major projects across the north of England. She is currently a board member of the Millennium Quarter Trust in Manchester (including Urbis and Cathedral Gardens) and Acting Chair of the Places Matter! Programme in the North West.
