Northern Soul: Culture, Creativity and quality of place in Newcastle and Gateshead
Library Shelf Location 11.GATE
Publication Date Dec 2003
Description Newcastle and Gateshead are reversing the 'brain drain' of graduates and professionals to the south-east. Improved quality of life, affordable houses and the cultural buzz symbolised by projects like the Baltic art gallery and the Sage music centre are all key reasons why Newcastle and Gateshead are attracting people. However the report warns that Newcastle and Gateshead could still fall into the trap of the ‘buzz to bland’ cycle. ‘Buzz to bland’ is the term used in the report to describe the cycle of urban regeneration in which creativity and character are lost in a rush of commercial developments.
