Hidden Gems


In July 2016, the streets of Liverpool were adorned with Hidden Gems: a free newspaper produced by a group of artists, writers and graphic designers who want you to hear the stories of Liverpool’s independent and artist-led art scene.

Josie co-ordinated the Hidden Gems project, which was made possible through a crowd funding campaign that received an incredible response, and with sponsorship from seven independent Liverpool businesses: The Baltic Social, Cow and Co., Cuthbert’s Bakehouse, Free State Kitchen, Rennies Arts and Crafts, R. Jackson and Sons, and The Pen Factory.

5000 copies of Hidden Gems were distributed to a multitude of venues across Liverpool. You can read the paper online on ISSUU website. https://issuu.com/hiddengems/docs/hidden_gems?e=25679426/37290230 Please contact Josie for a PDF version.
