Cities of Culture, 30 years on. Who has the edge?
In 2018, Liverpool looks back into the 10 year legacy of becoming European Capital of Culture. It does so as the first city to have fully documented its journey from inception, amassing over two decades of evidence on the impact and value of cultural interventions as catalysts for urban change.
The Institute of Cultural Capital (ICC) is partnering with Culture Liverpool, British Council and the CreArt European Network to present the results of 15 years interrogating the long term impact of cultural interventions in cities around the world: from Impacts 08 to Impacts 18.
Save the date and join us at this two-day international symposium. We will place Liverpool in conversation with other cities worldwide to answer these questions:
When being a city of culture is everyone’s aspiration… Who has the edge? What are the legacies? Where is the evidence?
Discussions will evolve around one major research presentation, six plenary sessions and three parallel workshops dedicated to rethinking the big questions that both established and aspiring ‘cities of culture’ face today. We would be delighted if you would join us in Liverpool this October, to find out more, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
