Administrative / Biographical History

The aim of the initiatives department of the Glasgow 1999 Festival Co Ltd was to bring about an increase of the appreciation of architecture and design to everyone. It was to leave a lasting legacy on the ground and in the city's culture.

This was to be achieved through a concerted collaboration with people through a structured consultative framework and community programme. Several different projects were set up: the Partnership Fund, Area Festivals, Millennium Spaces and Housing Initiatives which comprised of the Homes For The Future project, the EUROPAN Project in conjunction with the Glasgow City Council, and various competitions in conjunction with Scottish Homes.
