Brian was recently described as a ‘Creative Superhero’! With a background in music, he established SAFE Regeneration in 2000, developing as a participatory community artist working on many projects in the region. Under ‘The Captain’s’ leadership, SAFE has fostered the growth of a creative, community-led social enterprise cluster and now holds an enviable reputation for successfully facilitating community engagement and participatory public activities across many sectors in North West England. Now focusing at a strategic level on delivering the #destinationbootle programme - the UK's largest community-led neighbourhood scheme, Brian says: “Bootle is changing and we consider it our responsibility to ensure that local people are involved in that change and take advantage of the many opportunities it will create.”
