Taunya's Creative City

A Creative City

a diverse metropolitan that continually fosters permanent and impermanent public acts of creativity - benefits from an economic infrastructure, able to support (compensate) creative endevours. A Creative City, at its core, focuses on the interaction of creative publics. A Creative Economy, while it aims to stimulate a Creative City as industry, also discriminates between desirable publics. It promotes a knowledge economy (in place of traditional, industrial labour - employed by 'lower-class' workers), citizens with post-secondary education (over 'experience'), begins by increasing investments in the "most important heritage buildings" as deemed by a select City Council, and often favours 'cosmopolitan' works to Indigenous art. A Creative Economy is fundamentally concerned with stimulating commerce, with creativity as a byproduct.
