Royal Standard – The Winner Takes It All?

royal standard logoThe Winner Takes It All? Conference 24 – 26 October 2008
A research and networking weekend that will aim to playfully explore and debate the effect of the European Capital of Culture status on its recipient cities.


In collaboration with Redwire Studios, The Royal Standard will play host to artists and groups from past, present and future Capitals of Culture including Glasgow, Vilnius and Istanbul, along with cities that were short-listed but missed out on the award. A programme of collaborative tours, participatory events and social activity will punctuate the weekend, mapping and engaging with the city’s official and unofficial culture and informing an ongoing process of discussion and debate which will culminate in a public panel discussion.
