Mission

Arts and culture - once minor concerns for urban development compared with crime, education and transportation - now provide a new grammar for an older urbanity. While artists are thought to contribute to urban economic vitality through their practice and its mode of production, policy makers explore the spillover of artist's activities into regeneration and the creative industries. It is those activities and practices that are often under-researched and merely serve an instrumental focus. Yet they could be the source for a more sustainable approach to cultural development.  My own research has an interest in studying how artistic and cultural activity concentrates human capital in certain cities, making these culturally active.
