Change is constant and empires come and go. The big steelworks that once dominated the city have gone and the associated Steelworks Golf Club survives with a new identity.
The nearby BHP Billiton workshops and labs are said to be reborn as part of the University (nextdoor).
Is it more the case that when art, science and religion are in tension rather than in alliance that new ideas are stimulated?

Very interesting...With regard to your question, I think not. Generally religion has been hostile to art (unless it was religious art) and certainly hostile to science until it has to accept reality.
