Creative Industries and Economies

Shanghai is home to some of the world’s largest “creative clusters” – initiatives that highlight China’s commitment to expanding creative industries and economies. Combining insights and experiences from academic researchers, creative industry leaders and policymakers, this course includes site visits to clusters in the country’s largest city. The aim is to deepen participant understanding of the approaches used in developing cultural and creative industries there – and how these are regulated by the city’s and country’s cultural policies – while catching a first-hand glimpse of the evolving role creative clusters are playing in urban regeneration.
