Liverpool is often referred to as a city of story tellers. In this project, we encouraged a range of local residents involved in the service sector to tell their city in their own way to give a sense of how they convey their personal perception of Liverpool, how they try and project the city to visitors, and the ways they interpret the perception of those from outside Liverpool. Participants were asked (i) to contrast their perceptions with their views on the formal or ‘official’ (e.g. promotional) narratives of the city and (ii) the impact that having the title of European Capital of Culture has had on perceptions and stories about Liverpool.
