Professor Andy Pratt is giving a keynote, along with Allen Scott from UCLA, on issues of cities and the cultural economy to open a unique event in Montreal next week (May 22-25) called ‘Commerce and Creativity’ or ‘C2-MTL’ see http://c2mtl.com/
However, Andy and Allen are opening the bill for some truly global names of the media to follow the next day: Francis Ford Coppola, Michael Eisner and Arianna Huffington. See the agenda here http://c2mtl.com/c2-agenda/
A parallel conference that Andy and Allen are taking part in is being held at HEC Montreal on ‘proximity and the cultural economy’ which has a roster of well known academics giving papers.
Andy has also been asked to do a breakfast seminar for the British Consul and invited guests in Montreal.
Looks like a busy week. More news on this channel after the event.
