- 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.
