This subject introduces you to the creative industries and the roles of the so-called ‘creative class’ and creative entrepreneur in shaping communities, urban development and digital economies in recent decades. By delving critically into the discourse of creative entrepreneurship you will question what creativity is, how it has been used in the service of capitalism, and what dissenting voices oppose creativity. You will also explore firsthand how creativity can counter business-as-usual to forge new forms of democracy and engage in action for social equality and circular economies – or not! You will apply your critical lens to identify and develop a creative opportunity and learn the skills to take an idea from conception through to realisation of a public project.
