The Port of Liverpool Building formerly Mersey Docks and Harbour Board Offices, more commonly known as the Dock Office in Liverpool, England. It is located at the Pier Head and, along with the neighbouring Royal Liver Building and Cunard Building, is one of Liverpool’s Three Graces, which line the city’s waterfront. It is also part of Liverpool’s UNESCO-designated World Heritage Maritime Mercantile City.
On early September, I was invited by Dr. Alethea Melling to the International Paulo Freire Conference in Larnaca, Cyprus organized by the Freire Institute and the University of Central Lancashire. It was related to my study Community and Leadership on University of Central Lancashire, and also I have pleasure to be the photographer of the event.
The conference was on the theme of ‘Education and Global Transitions’ and include the following sub-themes: Education with Migrant and Transient Communities, Gender and Education, Popular Education Theory and Practice, Education and Development, Social Media, Technology and Culture, Inequality and the Commodification of Education.
It was great time for me thanks to Dr. Alethea Melling, Paul Wilkinson, UCLAN and Paulo Freire institute staff members.
Keith Melling is one of England’s leading landscape painters. Born in 1946, he has been drawing and painting for as long as he can remember. His first exhibition of 40 paintings was in 1966. Although making use of a wide variety of mediums and techniques, including wood engraving, etching, watercolour, gouache, acrylic and pastel, it is oil paint made by himself in the traditional way which is still his favourite. There is an ever increasing demand for his fine quality prints, published from paintings produced over the last 40 years. He is represented in collections throughout the world.
The K Melling Studio-Gallery in Fence, close to Pendle Hill and the Forest of Bowland, displays a full range of over 100 framed pictures plus greetings cards and post cards.
