CreArt Conference in Liverpool: Cities of Culture, 30 years on. Who has the edge? October 17 until 19 October 2018

In October 2018, the Institute of Cultural Capital is partnering with Culture Liverpool, CREART and the British Council for a two-day international symposium dedicated to discussing the long term impact (over 30 years) of hosting major events — in so doing, underlining the case for the value of culture as a catalyst for change in cities more generally.

The symposium will discuss opportunities as well as challenges — in particular, what it takes for cities to maintain a distinctive and competitive edge, in an era where becoming a ‘city of culture’ is a common aspiration. Featuring conversations with cities from the UK, Europe and beyond, these discussions will consider not only the rewards that can potentially be reaped by event-led cultural regeneration but also the barriers to, and risks of, success.
