Researchers at the Institute of Cultural Capital (ICC) have launched an online survey to find out what local residents think about Liverpool’s World Heritage Site (WHS) status.

The survey is part of the ‘Heritage, Pride and Place’ study to assess the impact of the World Heritage Site (WHS) status on Liverpool’s image and reputation as well as on local citizens’ sense of pride and place.

Researchers also want to explore the opportunities and challenges that WHS status offers the city and whether it creates any cultural and economic value.

‘Heritage, Pride and Place’ is led by Dr Beatriz Garcia, Head of Research, Cultural Policy and Impact at the ICC and involves local partners including English Heritage, Liverpool Vision and Liverpool Local Enterprise Partnership.

The survey will be live until 10 October.

The Institute of Cultural Capital is a strategic partnership between the University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores Univeristy. For more information about our research interests and current projects visit:
