ART ON SHOW

Sydney artist Melissa Carey's giant heart sculpture - Open Heart - will be the centrepiece of the festival again this year.

Last year it was a favourite backdrop for selfies.

Ox King is creating a brand new mural on the site, providing lasting colour to the city long after the event is over.

The mural is inspired by the multicultural aspects of Liverpool, particularly the Arabic influence of that part of the city centre.

Thomas Thorby-Lister's colourful cut-out characters will adorn walls and fences for all your Instagramming needs.

Festival goers can take part in the immersive performance It's Not About The Cars. Three audience members can sit in the back seat of a parked car at a time.

With the doors locked and sound on, they will be taken on a journey exploring memory and storytelling.

The performance has been created by Claudia Chidiac, Lama Zakharia and Sandra May.
