The cultural and creative industries
O'Connor, Justin (2013) The cultural and creative industries. In Stevenson, D. & Young, G. (Eds.) The Ashgate Research Companion to Planning and Culture. Ashgate Publishing, Aldershot, England.
A critical and Historical account of the cultural and creative industries as a policy discourse. It argues that the emergence of a cultural policy discourse was part of a progressive democratic politics from the 1960s onwards, taking cognizance of the emergence of new kinds of commercial popular culture. It suggests that this period saw the merging of aesthetics and culture in particular ways. The creative industries come from a different source which combined innovation theory, embedded economics and entrepreneurialism in ways that resulted in a much less progressive politics. The chapter ends by suggesting the the idea of the creative industries is now at an end.
