When being a ‘city of culture’ is everyone’s aspiration...
Who has the edge?  What are the legacies? Where is the evidence?

 In 2018, Liverpool looked back on the 10 year anniversary of becoming European Capital of Culture as the only city to have so comprehensively documented its journey since the bid stage, over 20 years ago

The ground-breaking original research programme, Impacts 08 — together with its successor research programme, Impacts 18 — collectively represent twenty years worth of evidence on the impact and value of the EU awarded European Capital of Culture programme as a catalyst for urban change.
