Abstract

Intermediaries and imaginaries in the cultural and creative industries, Regional Studies. This paper conducts an historical and conceptual review of the idea of cultural intermediaries and sets up a contrast between the cultural and creative industries. It draws on theorizations of economic imaginaries and reconstructs the respective imaginaries of cultural and creative industries. It suggests that the former was organized around the culturalization of the economy and the second around the economization of culture. Nevertheless, there are complicities between them, not least in the contention that a new set of economic developments would redeem the traditional promises of culture.
