Connected Communities and Creative Economy; Clash, cluster, complexity, creativity
Hartley, John (2010) Connected Communities and Creative Economy; Clash, cluster, complexity, creativity. In Research Development Workshop - Connected Communities, 6-8 December, 2010, Birmingham, UK. (Unpublished)
After a brief personal orientation, this presentation offers an opening section on „clash, cluster, complexity, cities‟ – making the case that innovation (both creative and economic) proceeds not only from incremental improvements within an expert-pipeline process, but also from the clash of different systems, generations, and cultures. The argument is that cultural complexity arises from such clashes, and that clustering is the solution to problems of complexity. The classic, 10,000-year-old, institutional form taken by such clusters is … cities. Hence, a creative city is one where clashing and competitive complexity is clustered… and, latterly, networked.
