Since its inception the Blackie has operated away from its home base. This is as true of its work with young people as it is in other areas.
The major difference between the work at the Blackie and the work in other places is that we simply provided the workshops (artists) - the adventure play aspect of a playscheme and the keeping of good order was theoretically (and usually in practice) provided by whoever was running the playscheme - local mums. youth workers, playleaders etc.
And much though not by any means all of it was done in conjunction with MPAC (Merseyside Play Action Council) who provided funding for artists to work on playschemes.
