Glasgow is grateful to the Arts Council

  • Comment

Richard Burton pays an eloquent tribute to the work of the Arts Council's Architecture Unit. He is right to single out Lord Palumbo who, 45 years after the establishment of the Arts Council, finally managed to put architecture on its agenda. But contrary to his suggestion that 'maybe it hasn't been adequately signalled that the Year of Architecture and Design in Glasgow is the Arts Council's invention', Glasgow has of course gratefully acknowledged the council's role, and its financial support, at every opportunity.

Without the Arts Council, the Glasgow year would simply not have been possible. At the same time, we are also very grateful to Glasgow City Council, the Glasgow Development Agency, the European Regional Development Fund, the Heritage Lottery Fund, Historic Scotland, Scottish Homes, and the many private-sector sponsors, large and small, who have helped Glasgow 1999 to realise the high ambitions of the year.
