We will begin this course by considering the rise of the creative city as a policy concept: why is it one of the most important terms in urban development across the world today? And why has the subject of 'cities' become so central for UN as well as national development and growth all over the world? If we look across the world today, we can observe two approaches to the creative city, one embracing economic globalisation (and centred around retail, consumption and global brands) and the other embracing the local (historical, memory, cultural and everyday street life). What political motivations drive these two approaches, and are they compatible? Does London or Berlin, for example , represent a good synthesis of global and local? Or are the global and local continually in tension or conflict? In order to answer this, we will look at the discourses of urban cultural policy and urban planning, and ask questions about the role of culture in cities, the challenge of creativity to city development and politics, the role of the arts in cities, and alternative approaches to large scale city development (such as community development or sub-cultural activism).
