Creative Industries and the Region: Relationships between Places, Local and Regional Policies and Creative Production
University of Birmingham - England | 23 September 2009 to 24 September 2009
The third seminar will explore the relationship between creative industries and regional policies. In particular we would welcome papers which address the following questions: Do creative industries need policy support? Do local and regional policies make a difference to the development of creative industries? At what geographical level should policy and support initiatives be implemented? How should regional policy be integrated with national policy? What are the best policy tools to support creative industries? To what extent economic development policies are sufficient? What about international policy? How and to what extent supporting creative industries foster regional economic development?
