Ulster's political party leaders Gerry Adams MP and Dawn Purvis MLA united in support for Mural Project

Though there have been many political changes in Northern Ireland in recent years and two of the leading political parties have declared their steadfast support for The Liverpool Mural Project. The Progressive Unionist Party and Sinn Fein have both contacted TLMP to fully back this significant, historic and exciting arts project that wishes to change the face of Liverpool for the better in 2008.
Dawn Purvis was chosen as PUP's new party leader in January 2007 and became the first woman to lead a unionist party in Northern Ireland. She played a vital role in the peace talks team in 1998.
Gerry Adams has been President of Sinn Féin since 1983, and has been instrumental in the party's peace strategy. He has travelled internationally to advance the peace process particularly in the United States, Britain and South Africa.

Both politicans stand behind the principals of The Liverpool Mural Project and its desire to bring together muralists from both sides of the political divide in Northern Ireland.
