Queen of Culture



In 2004 I took on the mantle (and cloak) of Liverpool Queen Of Culture and have been carrying out my Royal duties since then....

The Great Make-Over
This was due to be a residency in the temporary Bluecoat space to comment on the major redevelopment opposite on Paradise Street but the redevelopers took back the building before it could happen and so it became a visit to the redevelopment site and a publication about the visit with text and photographs (by Leila Romaya and Paul McCann) called “The Great Make-Over”. The visit was also videoed. Copies of the publication are still available on request.


Queen Of Culture
Life gets busier for the Queen Of Culture as we approach 2008 and Liverpool’s year as Capital Of Culture.
The pictures below show me out and about as part of “The Great Make-Over”, the Liverpool Biennial opening day in September, and from a feature in “Space” magazine, the December/January issue. I also assisted at the launch of the 2008 Programme of Events in St George’s Hall in November, signing copies of “The Great Make-Over”.
