Cherie Blair launches Liverpool Biennial

CHERIE BLAIR arrived in Liverpool yesterday among councillors to celebrate the Biennial celebrations to open the UK's largest contemporary visual arts festival. 

Joining Mrs Blair at the special event were the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Frank Roderick and Council Leader Mike Storey to bring together artists, architects, filmmakers and other arts professionals from all over the world, as Liverpool becomes a 'Capital of Colour'. 

The event attracted 300,000 visitors to the city as the Biennial has become an event that brings innovative, challenging and controversial art throughout the city, in galleries, shop windows, garages and even billiard halls.

The £2m Liverpool city council-led creative communities programme has funded two projects showcased during the Biennial.

On September 26 three films, about a French chef, the '79 bus and the hopes of children in north Liverpool, will be showcased, entitled 'Made in Liverpool', at Central Hall. And on October 8, South Korean artist Yeondoo Jung will unveil, in a high profile city centre location, a montage by 5-10 year-olds of a futuristic Liverpool.

 The Juice FM Radio Star With Aimhigher - Greater Merseyside

WE'VE all been there, driving home listening to a presenter on the radio thinking "I could do that"… or realised just how much money Club DJ's can make and wanted to get in on the action… Now 107.6 Juice FM Liverpool is set to find the new radio and club talents of the future.

The Juice FM Radio Star is offering two listeners a perfect launch pad for a career in radio or Liverpool Clubland, following in the steps of such Merseyside luminaries as new Juice FM breakfast presenter Louis Hurst, and superstar DJ Yousef.

Juice FM's Programme Director Grainne Landowski says:- "It's not a way of finding cheap labour, really! We know from the amount of emails we receive how many people would love a career in radio, plus everyone knows a great budding DJ."

Backed by Liverpool's government-funded organisation Aimhigher, auditions will take place on one day only, Saturday 2 October, at The Door in Hanover Street, Liverpool city centre.

Aimhigher - Greater Merseyside - Director Emy Onuora says:- "107.6 Juice FM and Aimhigher are set to prove what most of us already know, that Liverpool is a city full of talents. We believe open auditions are incredibly successful in terms of unearthing real natural talent and we are thrilled to be able to help Merseyside with their career choices."
