We are currently developing an augmented reality app to create a digital portrait of St. Helens. Participants are working with artists and performers to explore issues around the history, geography, and diversity of the town.

This new AR App will offer a creative overlay to a variety of outdoor spaces in St Helens. That will enable audiences of all ages to experience multimedia artwork outside the confines of galleries or performance spaces.



  • Content created by participants
  • AR app guides visitors around the town to reveal new features
  • AR app launche planned for late 2021




Breaking down the walls of art galleries. Letting communities and visitors explore St Helens like never before.



  • Creative response by locals to their town
  • Showcasing creative response
  • Using augmented reality (AR) to share the work more widely.
  • Culminates in outdoor AR exhibition
