Culture and the arts deliver huge benefits to Liverpool City Region. They bring people together to enjoy once-in-a-lifetime events, as well as attracting tourists who boost our visitor economy. But even more than that, the events that go on across the city region give local people the opportunity to learn their trade and thrive in cultural professions, without the need to move away.
