We have been busy in Turku at our final workshop where we have been finalising the recommendations for a replicable research framework! It’s now almost two weeks since we are back and it’s heads down for the final touches. All will be ready for our event ‘WHAT CULTURE DOES FOR US: RESEARCHING AND EVALUATING EUROPEAN CAPITALS OF CULTURE’ in Brussels on 13 July 2010.

Turku is only 6 months away from its big European Capital of Culture year and here are some impressions from the city!


New reports on responses to Liverpool’s ECoC

Impacts 08 has just published two new reports on Liverpool’s European Capital of Culture in 2008:

  • Neighbourhood Impacts is a longitudinal research study into the impact of the Liverpool European Capital of Culture on local residents. It explores what local people felt about the Liverpool ECoC, their levels of cultural participation, and their perceptions of their city and some of its individual neighbourhoods.
  • Tourism and the business of culture gathers the views of small and medium-sized tourism businesses on the Liverpool ECoC, and is the result of in-depth interviews and an on-line survey of businesses within Liverpool and Merseyside’s visitor economy

Further reports are available on the publication section of the Impacts 08 website.  Happy reading!
