Focused on the future history of Scotland's towns, STC17 examines how, as a nation of towns, it is critical that we embrace our heritage; not only to acknowledge it, but to measure its worth, and value it; and to curate, preserve, protect and promote it. In a world seeking authenticity, it is how we use our towns’ heritage moving forward that will help determine the social, cultural and economic wellbeing of communities across Scotland.

Hosted with Paisley 2021 and Renfrewshire Council, our home for this year is the wonderful Paisley. Truly embracing its future history, the town’s vision is centred on its world class cultural and heritage assets and has begun an extensive programme of regeneration activity and investment. 

Five reasons to attend this year's gathering: 

  • Leading speakers on place-making, towns and heritage, including Rob St Mary (Director of Outreach, Patronicity, Detroit), Kevin Stewart MSP (Minister for Local Government and Housing, Scottish Government), Sandra Black (Chief Executive, Renfrewshire Council & Board Member, Paisley 2021), Riddell Graham (Director of Partnerships, VisitScotland) and many more. 
  • Guided walking tour of Paisley’s strategic activity areas. 
  • 'Back to the Future' town centre innovation labs; "Tourism in our Towns" and "Digital Future Proofing".
  • Networking, marketplace and cultural performances.
  • Competition exhibitions: Most Beautiful High Street winner announcement, and FutureTown Design Competition exhibition and voting.
