LIVERPOOL’S leading arts groups have given their full backing to the work of the Culture Company in planning 2008.

In a joint statement, the Liverpool Philharmonic, as well as the city’s theatres and galleries endorse the work of artistic director Robyn Archer.

Australian Ms Archer has been at the centre of stories about obtaining a UK work visa.

The arts bosses expressed concern at a widely held public perception that “nothing was happening” in the run-up to Capital of Culture.
