What’s Your Canning Dock Story?

In September 2021 National Museums Liverpool (NML) announced a major redevelopment of Liverpool’s historic Canning Dock. After a hotly contested competition, they announced the winning team who will lead on the project. The team is a collaboration between Asif Khan Studio, Sir David Adjaye OBE, Mariam Kamara, and artist Theaster Gates as the winning team of the Waterfront Transformation Project: Canning Dock competition. 

This project will transform the area between the Royal Albert Dock and Mann Island, as well as revitalise waterfront facilities, as part of NML’s 10-year Liverpool waterfront redevelopment plan. 

We would love to hear your stories and memories of Canning Dock, as well as your thoughts on the redevelopment. If you wish to share your stories, please post in the comments below or email info@writingonthewall.org.uk. 

Join us from 6pm outside the Museum of Liverpool on the waterfront for a guided tour of the Canning Dock, to find out about its history and the plans for redevelopment, followed by a panel event, Q&A and Discussion with Asif Khan, Mariam Kamara, Theaster Gates and Laura Pye in the museum.
