    Council says culture bid can change region for generations

    Culture has long been recognised as a force for economic and social change. Amy Harhoff, Durham County Council’s corporate director of regeneration, economy and growth, explains how securing the prestigious title of UK City of Culture 2025 for County Durham has the potential to deliver positive change for generations to come.

    In County Durham there is a long history of cultural-led regeneration, with an action-packed festival and events programme, vibrant arts venues, rich heritage and world-class tourist offer pumping millions of pounds into the economy each year.
