Naturally I agree entirely.
‘I now throw down the gauntlet to other businesses in and around Liverpool to ask themselves whether they could offer something to arts or cultural groups which might help them raise their profile. Doesn’t have to be cash. Maybe just an afternoon once a month to give a bit of advice or direction. And perhaps a few more arty types might like to be a bit more up front in asking for help. Knock on a few doors, make a few phone calls, expect some rejection but perseverance will pay.’
