We are delighted that Kristal Clark, who dedicated her time as a volunteer on the very first Abandon Normal Devices festival in Liverpool last year, has been given the prestigious honour of Liverpool 'Cultural Champion'. 

\r\n
\r\n
After a three month long search, which resulted in more than 100 nominations, 15 candidates have been shortlisted to become Cultural Champions, with five to be chosen to represent each of the city’s neighbourhoods. They will attend cultural events and ‘blog’ about their activities over the next 12 months.
\r\n
 
\r\n
The Cultural Champions will also shadow councillors, informally report to their local area committee (e.g. Liverpool East) and help raise awareness of events in their community in a move to expand and make people more aware of the range of events across the city and build on the legacy of ’08.
\r\n

We wish Kristal the best of luck, and hope she will join us for the next AND festival in 2011!
