The second conversation in the Sky Arts Artichoke Salon Series. 

Are large-scale outdoor events nothing more than a waste of resources and a drain on the public purse? Or does creating a shared history by galvanizing a community far outweigh the disruption and cost?

In the wake of Liverpool ’08 (European Capital of Culture) and the sixth Liverpool Biennial, City Limits¬†explored the impact of art on a city. It looked at the legacy left behind by a programme including¬†La Machine that transformed the city and examined the effect cultural events can leave on the city and its residents.

In partnership with Sky Arts, TATE, Liverpool Biennial, Arts Council England.
