Volume 3 No 5 / November 29, 200429 November 2004
The suggestion in the Harvard Business Review’s 2004 Breakthrough Ideas edition (February 2004) that a Masters of Fine Arts degree has become the new MBA is a sign of heightened interest and recognition of the developmental role played by creative professionals in the economic, physical and social evolution of a city. But what is the definition of a creative city? What are the benefits and barriers to the creative city process? This issue of the Arts Research Monitor focuses on four research papers that seek to provide some answers to these questions.
