Why I'm backing the City of Culture bid: Kayleigh Herbertson
IT'S inarguable that the identity Plymouth bears and the strengths it has have been changing for years.
What has also changed and grown are the strong creative undertones that are starting to flourish everywhere. The obvious examples would be the Plymouth College of Art and Design in addition to Plymouth University, which has a renowned illustration course and growing popularity in its English literature and creative writing options. We also have the Barbican Theatre and Theatre Royal for their impressive addition to our performing arts repertoire.
But it's not just an influx of students in the arts; there are creators across Plymouth that have brought innovative, cultural ideas to the forefront. From the Dartmoor arts programs, performances, activities, the International Book Festival and the dozens of other groups and projects coming from those who believe that there is a vein of artists in this city who are ready and willing to participate. They have the energy and the enthusiasm, however what they desperately need are the resources and publicity to bring together all these artists and creative individuals into one amazing powerhouse.
Under one banner, which I honestly believe this City of Culture may well prove to be, artists old and new can be united, ending the fragmented creative industry in this city for good.
