I am pleased to have featured in #France24 Culture / @encoref24 programme dedicated to discussing the impact of Brexit on the UK’s arts world.
I spoke of the value for the UK of hosting the UE European Capital of Culture twice and of the legacies #Glasgow1990 and #Liverpool2008 generated not just for their cities and cultural programming in the UK, but also for subsequent ECoC hosts across the continent
The choice of quote within this programme is a line regarding how the UK has contributed to shaping the #ECoC programme, its priorities, its vision & its mechanisms for delivery since 1990. This refers to the continued opportunities the UK has had to influence the rest of Europe thanks to the backing of well established EU platforms & networks such as the ECoC programme.
