A Creative City

The creative city concept aims to restructure urban economies toward new synergies between culture and economy. In an age of globalization and information flows, the creative cities framework articulates coordination among knowledge industries, investment and real estate sectors, creative practitioners across the arts and entertainment, architects and planners, government officials and diverse community members to create an economically and culturally viable and attractive city, particularly for the ‘creative classes.’ The Creative City is an idea motivated by dynamics of a competitive global economy (neo-liberalism) where wealth and power predicate on the dominance of knowledge, information and image production.
