Project status: Completed
Australian Research Council Discovery Projects
This project will critically evaluate the scope for development of new enterprises in creative industries sectors in Australia's new suburban and peri-urban communities. It responds conceptually to the tendency in the research literature towards an 'inner-urban' bias in understanding well-springs of creativity in cities, and practically to the diversity and heterogeneity of types of creative enterprises identified in creative industries research.
The project will draw upon statistical data on Australia's creative industries, as well as urban studies, cultural studies and cultural geography, to generate findings that impinge upon questions of urban cultural policy, sustainability, and economic growth and innovation.
The qualitative component of the study is nearly complete. Interviews have been conducted with over 120 creative industries workers/practitioners across four outer suburban sites: Redcliffe and Springfield in Brisbane, and Frankston and Dandenong in Melbourne.
Bureaucratic decision makers, cultural development workers and developers have also been interviewed. Statistical data has provided quantitative information about the types and number of people working in creative industries and those creatives embedded in other industries, across the four research locations.
We've found significant creative industries presence in Redcliffe, Frankston and Dandenong, less in Springfield.
Several themes identified from the data to date:
4 conference papers presented:
1 published article
2 articles in final proofing to submit for publication
2 newspaper articles
1 online opinion piece
