Creative Economy: Critical Perspectives


Glasgow, 1 March 2019 | 10.30—16.00

Though the creative economy remains a powerful idea in policy circles, concerns about inequality, worker exploitation and the promotion of over-consumption have begun to grow.

This one-day workshop looks at some of these concerns, but also at the potential for arts and culture to help us think through these issues and re-frame a more sustainable and human creative economy.

Please note that the event is now fully booked. You can join our waiting list, we will be in touch if a seat becomes available again. For enquiries, please contact Prof Kate Oakley.
