Cornwall is Europe’s first ever Region of Culture
For over 20 years, Europe has recognised Capitals of Culture, where a city is chosen by the European Union and given a chance to showcase its cultural life on a local, national and international stage. But why is it only cities? Cornwall has just as much culture as a city. We’re going to propose Cornwall as Europe’s first ever Region of Culture. It’s a bold step but we think it’s worth it because, if successful, there will be a year-long celebration of Cornish culture in 2010 where Cornwall could get the cultural fame it deserves both at home and abroad.
