The implications of creative industries for regional outcomes
Yigitcanlar, Tan, Baum, Scott, & O'Connor, Kevin (2006) The implications of creative industries for regional outcomes. In Creativity and Smart Policy as Signposts for Innovative Development Conference, 29 - 30 May 2006, Netherlands, Amsterdam.
As the 21st century progresses, the most successful economies and societies will be creative ones. Worldwide, governments are producing strategies to encourage the development of creative industries and to strengthen the role of knowledge cities nationally and internationally. There is a significant policy discussion regarding the role of creative clusters in strengthening local economies and significant energy has been expended discussing the many positive outcomes of such developments. This article takes these issues as a starting point and considers the role of creative industries within broader concerns regarding uneven metropolitan development. By developing a typology of jobs across Australia’s metropolitan regions, the article will consider the broad social and economic impacts of uneven development of creative industry jobs between metropolitan regions and also the implications for individual metropolitan regions and policy outcomes.
