Homebaked Community Land Trust lies on the boundary of Everton and Anfield, just opposite Liverpool Football Club. We are a growing group of local residents who have been working together since 2012 to shape the place where we live and work in community ownership.
Starting from having saved our iconic neighbourhood bakery from demolition and supported our first tenant, Homebaked Bakery, to develop into a thriving community business, we are now transforming the adjacent terrace into environmentally sustainable, quality homes and commercial spaces at genuinely affordable rent. By regenerating our high street 'brick by brick and loaf by loaf', we will be using money spent in the neighbourhood to benefit our communities.
Our work is based on the simple belief that we all deserve to live well; for us that means making sure that the homes and spaces we create together are high quality and kept affordable to the people who live and work here - not just now, but also for future generations. We believe that living well includes access to an environment that provides good jobs, great food and welcoming spaces to meet, share stories, learn and celebrate.
DEADLINE EXTENDED - OPEN CALL FOR LOCAL ARTIST
In August 2022, Homebaked Community Land Trust will begin the building phase of their project to develop Oakfield Terrace into community owned homes, businesses and social spaces.
Working with Anfield councillors, we want to celebrate this by inviting a local artist to explore the theme of ‘home and belonging for all’ in Anfield. By local, we mean anyone who lives, works, or has a significant connection to the Anfield Ward.
Artists can work in any media (visual arts, sculpture, performance, theatre, storytelling, literature, film, photography) but should engage with local residents as part of their creative process and present a public facing event or exhibition at the culmination of the project.
£ 1000 plus £ 500 materials budget with possibility for extension dependent on funding.
You will also have the opportunity to receive mentoring support through the duration of the project either from one of the Homebaked team or an external creative.
We expect the appointed Ward Artist will complete between 5-10 days work (dependent on experience) and engage with 5-10 local residents. The project will commence on 19th September and is expected to last approximately 6 weeks.
Please send the following in either written or video form via email to email@example.com by 5pm on Friday 12th August:
- a proposal outlining your project idea and how you would deliver it in response to the theme of ‘home and belonging for all’ in Anfield. Please include with this an estimated project timeline. (max. 500 words or 3 minutes recorded)
- a CV or short bio explaining your previous work and experience working with communities (max. 1 side of A4 or 3 minutes recorded)
We welcome applications from all suitably qualified candidates, regardless of their race, gender, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age.
If you would like the application in an alternative format or have any access needs to apply please contact Naomi at firstname.lastname@example.org

Work will start on site within a few months and the homes are scheduled to be ready by June 2022; Homebaked aims to lease the scheme to a housing co-operative - so that people renting the homes have a real commitment to the local community.
The sessions are slightly different, one explains the model, the second goes more in-depth into how we can work together to make this happen!
People Power vol. 2 is a publication created by members of Homebaked CLT, local organisation and residents and with contributions from across Liverpool and beyond. Inspired by A Homebaked Kinda Day in February 2021 we explore what it means to live, work and play well in a complex and challenging world. In this issue of ‘People Power’, we celebrate some of the many great things that happen here in our neighbourhoods, as well as share some of the amazing initiatives going on elsewhere and that we can learn from.
We dedicate this publication to Mark Loudon, our dear friend and long-term collaborator who passed away at the beginning of this year. Throughout this newspaper, you will find some of the moments in our community seen through the lens of Mark Loudon. Enjoy!
