Project Description

Policies that govern Australia’s cultural economy focus predominately on cultural consumption. This outmoded approach fails to account for the changing dynamics of the cultural economy, particularly the emergent relationships with a complex urban manufacturing sector. As a result, many innovation, employment and urban
development opportunities around cultural production are unrealised. This project aims to identify new directions for urban cultural policy by conducting international comparative research around the emerging nexus between the cultural industries and manufacturing. The results will yield essential new insights into urban industry
dynamics and fundamentally transform how we conceptualise urban cultural policy in Australia.
