City of ideas
As Liverpool inches nearer to 'City of Culture' in 2008, how can we ensure that the variety of artistic ventures on offer are 'accessible' to those not usually equated with the arts?
Vinny & Luan -two of the people involved in Philosophy In Pubs are already actively addressing that question.
Culturepool is an organisation geared towards bringing people together to share the city's 'cultural events'.
They post info on events at places such as The liverpool Everyman Playhouse -
To name but a few. The idea is not only to spread the word on what's out there but also to arrange regular visits
to events so that the rich, cultural life of the city is not exclusive to the 'usual suspects'.
It's also a great way of giving people who live alone, the chance to go to an event and have the opportunity to talk about it afterwards.
I mention all this for one reason only. I've got a digital camera and I wanted to show you my first feeble attempts at taking a photograph and...wait for it....embedding it into this blog.
As it's a photograph of the Anglican Cathedral on Hope Street - taken on the day of the Hope Street Festival I thought Vinny & Luan's new venture suited it perfectly.
Just hope it works.
