Out of the Blue is a proposed exploration and interpretation of the once Lancashire Ultramarine Company in Backbarrow - a dialogue between the older community, may of whom worked at or lived around the dye works, and the newer communities, including of incomers, children and visitors. These diverse community groups will record and interpret this heritage through a series of workshops. A legacy of images poems, songs and dances created by the community will preserve the history and practice of the dye works for future generations of residents and visitors. A final celebration will present this as site specific art - literally painting the town blue
