    Project Description

    This project wil critically evaluate the scope of development of new enterprises in creative industries sectors in Australia's new suburban and peri-urban communities. It responds conceptually to the tendency in the research literature towards an 'inner-urban' bias in understanding well-springs of creativity in cities, and practically to the diversity and heterogeneity of types of creative enterprises in creative industries research. The project will draw upon statistical data on Australia's creative industries, as well as urban studies, cultural studies and cultural geography, to generate findings that impinge upon questions of urban cultural policy, sustainability, and economic growth and innovation.
