‘The Day the World Got Smaller’ is a web based learning resource about the history of the Liverpool to Manchester railway; the first ever railway between two cities.

Presented here are six new commissioned artworks which have been created in collaboration with children from six local primary schools. Each artwork has been the result of a participatory programme of workshops, collective research, heritage visits and a shared process of interpretation between artists and children.

The projects were commissioned by Metal Culture (www.metalculture.com) the arts organisation based inside Edge Hill Station, the oldest active passenger railway station. Metal are also creators of the Edge Hill Archive (www.edgehillstation.co.uk), a sister site that explores local heritage through the voice of older generations.

Design and build by Hato.
