City of Culture 2021 bid

Recommended Posts

It's been announced that one of the places bidding for City of Culture 2021 is...

 

 

 

Paisley.

 

I've lived and studied there and one thing it is not is cultural, St.Mirren are also considering renaming their ground Paisley 2021 Stadium.

Coventry city centre is nice, mostly university. Stoke and Swansea I've no idea but Sunderland is a ****ing dive.

It did sound odd at first that Paisley was in for it, but I assume that part of the reason for the City of Culture title is to act as a catalyst for regeneration.

Glasgow was European City of Culture a few years back. I am not sure how big a part it played in changing Glasgow's image, but I think it has changed.

There was always a decent amount of cultural activity in Glasgow, whether music, art or writing, but it was buried beneath an image associated with heavy industry, alcohol, violence and bigotry.
