Call for papers: Cultural Trends Join the Conversation on the Creative Economy

Taylor & Francis,
11 October 2017, United Kingdom

In this Special Issue of Cultural Trends, some thirty years after John Myerscough asserted the ‘economic importance of the arts in Britain,’ we explore how the idea of creative economy persists and invite papers that engage with themes including: changing policy understandings and constructions of the creative economy and reflections on its persistence; the creative economy in non-urban spaces, such as suburban, rural or coastal settings; creative economy resistance including worker organisation, anti-gentrification campaigns and arts activism; the creative economy in a post-growth world; alternative organisational and funding models for creative production; global policy approaches.
