We want to put Paisley and Renfrewshire on the map. We have a great story to tell and we need your help to tell it to the world. We want to know all the things that make our area special and a great place to live. Tell us why visitors should spend their time with us, and why businesses should choose to locate here. Our bid to be UK City of Culture 2021 gives us a unique opportunity to start a nationwide conversation and tell the untold story of our region.

Your story could be in the form of a postcard from the future, a photograph, a poem, a drawing. It could be an idea about a new place where arts or entertainment happens. It could be a story of your family history that’s never been told. It could be a big show, idea or event that you’d like to see come to the town and be part of. Every story and every idea is important to us.  

We are gathering all of your stories here, sharing our collective story with the world. And there are so many ways to get involved:
