Shell – Art not in your name – Banner
Banner for Shell Out Sounds (SOS), a wonderful group of creative singers who dropped into an evening of music that was sponsored by Shell. In the interval they stepped onto the stage, dropped this little banner, and sang a subversive song criticising the sponsorship of the event by Shell. Shell, much like many multi-nationals, often sponsors art and cultural events in a desparate attempt to ‘buy’ some good press and to look like ‘good guys’. I was proud to do my little bit to help. The SOS website has lyric sheets, music scores, information on Shell’s activities at home and abroad, and a series of neat little films on these ‘singing’ interventions.
