Eight Guidelines To Keep Creativity At The Heart of Cities

Eight Guidelines To Keep Creativity At The Heart of Cities | How to scale social innovation? | Scoop.it
Silvie Jacobi from This Big City lays out how to keep cultural production and creative industries thriving in our cities.


While creativity is associated with notions of change and innovation, there is no common ground in defining what “applied” creativity is. In cultural strategy, creativity is often used as a proxy for how much cultural consumption infrastructure a city offers. Planning creativity in favour of consumption is a risky undertaking that often gentrifies original clusters of cultural production.


Cities have been extremely important for the emergence of contemporary cultural production as they are places with extreme spatial and social density, access to infrastructure and with labour specialisation and cultural emancipation.
