CMCI’s Professor Andy Pratt is one of the organizers of the “Creative Cities: after the fall of finance” event at the World Congress of Sociology in Sweden next year. He’s also calling for people to take part.
The session will explore whether the global financial crisis is changing prospects and policies for cultural and creative knowledge in different urban and national contexts.
They will also be asking whether the meltdown of finance is generating hardships or relief for cultural and knowledge ensembles -or perhaps even new opportunities for development?
Paper proposals should be sent to session organizers as well as the conference coordinators: Fernando Diaz Orueta, Fernando.firstname.lastname@example.org and Kuniko Fujita, email@example.com by October 31, 2009.
