Tate Liverpool|City Limits

23 Sep

One and Other

With protests, petitions and various polemics taking place around arts funding at the minute there’s no better time for the upcoming public discussion instigated by Tate Liverpool in partnership with Sky Arts –  “City Limits“.

Chaired by broadcaster and curator Tim Marlow a panel will discuss the motion “Are large-scale public events nothing more than a waste of resources and a drain on the public purse?”

La Machine

The panel will include  Helen King, Assistant Chief Constable of Merseyside Police; Right Reverend James Jones, Bishop of Liverpool, Lewis Biggs, Artistic Director Liverpool Biennial, and Helen Marriage, Co-Director of Artichoke who produce large and highly visible public events such as La Machine and Gormley’s One an Other.

Perhaps fittingly the discussion will take place in the extraordinary surroundings of the Williamson Tunnels, a seemingly insane project borne out of eccentric patronage that took place in earlier times of recession and economic hardship.

The talk takes place on Thursday 7 October from 18.45–20.00
with free short tours of the Tunnels available between 18.00 and 18.35

Tickets are £7 or £4 concessions with booking required

For tickets book online or call 0151 702 7400
