World cultural heavyweights gathered in Liverpool for a unique conference which revealed some of the real legacies of the city’s year as European Capital of Culture 2008.

For two days (18 and 19 October 2018) Sir Bob Scott, who led Liverpool’s culture bid, was joined by leading political, media and artistic figures such as Lord Michael Heseltine, Maria Balshaw CBE, Ulrich Fulchs and TV presenter Jon Snow at a conference which will ultimately contribute towards a ground-breaking final report into the role culture plays in the development of cities.

The aim was to create a design which was bold and statement-like, as a reflection of the event’s title. In a tribute the host city of Liverpool, the turquoise-blue colour is a tribute to the famous Liver Birds.
