The Biennial attracts over 400,000 visitors, many of whom are visiting the city for the first time, and with Liverpool as incumbent European Capital of Culture, the number is set to increase this year.
Artists Anonymous’ exhibition, Communication and Association, is to be held at an impressive converted warehouse on Greenland Street, owned by the Biennial founders A Foundation. The building will also play host to the Biennial opening party and the public talks programme, as well as several high profile exhibitions. Communication and Association will contain a number of TV screens upon which local businesses are being offered the opportunity to advertise their products and services.
As part of Liverpool Chamber of Commerce’s initiative to promote Liverpool based companies and organisations through arts sponsorship during 2008 and beyond, your promotional video will be a central part of the impressive installation in A Foundation’s amazing 730m2 Furnace exhibition space.
Liverpool has a proud history of cultural philanthropy, from Lord Leverhulme, to Sir Henry Tate to the Moores family. The city’s current status as European Capital of Culture makes 2008 the perfect time to join this famous lineage. Artists Anonymous bring with them an impressive roll call of previous supporters including Bacardi, Blackberry, Deutsche Bank, Pioneer, Red Bull, Samsung, and Vanity Fair. Why not add your name to the list?
For a small sponsorship commitment of £500 or £1000, your company, through its video advert, will become part of what will be an exciting and unique public forum. From the opening party on the 19th September and for the following ten weeks of the Biennial, your video will be shown over five hundred times.
Communication and Association is also supported by Arts Council England, The Contemporary Art Society and Goethe Institute London
For £500 your Company’s video will be included in this impressive exhibition.
For £1000 a double length or twin video presentation will be included plus the following benefits:
- Banner/board on display
- Inclusion in publicity material and press releases
Spaces are limited and time is short so contact A Foundation as soon as possible to obtain more details and secure your company’s place in this high profile cultural event.
Please contact James Hutchinson at email@example.com or 0151 706 0600 for more details.

Liverpool businesses are rallying to support young lifesavers from across Europe to ensure they have a fantastic and memorable time in the Capital of Culture when they descend upon the city for the Red Cross’s prestigious First Aid Convention Europe – FACE 08 – which is being held here next month.
The fundraising initiative is being backed by the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber is encouraging member organisations to sponsor the visiting delegations from 30 European countries. The FACE event has two distinct elements; a major conference at the city’s stunning BT Convention Centre and a competition where international teams will be awarded points based on their ability to deal with a series of simulated disasters being staged in Sefton and Greenbank parks.
Liverpool Chamber Chief Executive Jack Stopforth explained why the Chamber was getting involved in supporting the event.
“It is a great privilege for Liverpool to be staging this event this year. The Red Cross are first on the scene at every international disaster and FACE 08 is a hugely important gathering for delegates to come together to share the latest techniques and best practice and hone their life saving skills. All the delegates and participants are volunteers and they are all paying their own way to get here. The organisers want all our European guests to experience authentic scouse hospitality and get the very best from their visit. That’s why we are encouraging local businesses to sponsor a visiting country and help pay for the hospitality programme.”
Merseyside Red Cross Operations Director John Sutherland, is proud to be hosting the event and determined to ensure that it lives up to the highly successful events held in Limerick and Assisi in recent years.
“I am delighted that our guests will be seeing Liverpool in this fantastic year and will be experiencing the outstanding facilities at the Convention Centre. We have put together a number of activities and events to make their stay as memorable as possible including a ride on a Mersey ferry to see Liverpool’s world famous waterfront. I am delighted that The Chamber of Commerce has stepped forward with this initiative to help cover the costs of this hospitality programme. I am sure that Liverpool’s big-hearted business community will respond with typical generosity.”
For £1000, the sponsors will get an advert in the FACE 08 program, a chance to attend the competition to cheer on their team, as well as free exhibition opportunity at the conference which will be attended by 1500 UK and European delegates.
Face 08 is taking place between Friday 20th and Sunday 22nd June. On Friday June 20th the teams will proudly parade into the Echo Arena wearing their country’s colours, hoping to claim one of the trophies.
For further information about FACE 08 or if you’d like to sponsor a team then please contact Julie Shannon or Chris Bogin at October Communications on 0151 236 2323 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or ChrisBogin@octobercomms.co.uk

This is an ideal opportunity for local businesses or individuals to sponsor and support a new major art prize. Starting in 2008, it will be one of the Capital of Culture’s more tangible legacies.
A new competition of contemporary art open to professional artists based in the Merseyside area which aims to celebrate outstanding talents that Liverpool has produced. We want the Liverpool Art Prize to be a major annual event in the local arts calendar. This project’s contribution to 2008 is to highlight and celebrate outstanding art by local artists and this will continue to be an annual award post-2008.
Held in conjunction with artinliverpool.com, Novas (gallery space), Alexander MacGregor (Catalogue Sponsor), Tate Liverpool (event collaboration). We have judges, a curator, and an excellent short-list of 6 artists, gallery space and website in place. The exhibition runs Feb 29 to April 10 then moves to Novas London gallery. See the Sponsorship page on the website.
Significant cash prize, smaller People’s Choice prize plus funds or In-Kind support for PR, Equipment and Refreshments.
