Prouder cities rise through the haze of time,
Yet, unenvious, all men have found is here.
– ‘Ode to Swansea’ by Vernon Watkins
We're fiercely proud to be based in our hometown Swansea. Seven of the poets we've featured so far are Swansea residents, and the city and its environs provide the backdrop to many of our videos. Swansea is already a city of culture – the Swansea 2021 team have proved that with their inspirational #SwanseaIsCulture hashtag –but it would be so good for the city and its residents to take the official UK City of Culture title for 2021.
The Crunch fully supports Swansea's bid to become UK City of Culture 2021. Good luck to everyone involved today, let's hope the judges agree that #SwanseaIsCulture!
