City of Culture 2021 Shortleet

July 16th, 2017 by Robin Rodger

The Perthshire Art Association joins in the disappointment that Perth has failed to make the shortleet for the UK City of Culture 2021.

Although Perth failed to make the last 5, local politicians have been quick to stress the positive outcomes of what they regard as a strong bid. A number of key initiatives on the Cultural front have already been announced by Perth and Kinross Council and its partners, which will proceed regardless of the outcome of the City of Culture bid.


The PAA looks forward to seeing these progressing as planned. The schemesĀ  include the refurbishment of Perth Museum and Art Gallery; the Creation of an Artistic Hub in the former St Johns Primary School (see separate page) and the creation of a new cultural facility in the former Perth City Hall.
