Cultural Work

Organisational unit: Research Grouping

Organisation profile

'Culture' and 'Creativity' have been core features of policy discourse for the best part of two decades, with creative industries often central to urban policy seeking to regenerate post-industrial cities. Within this context, creative workers have taken on a certain totemic quality: on the one hand they are viewed as exemplary agents, demonstrating resilience and flexibility, driving forward innovation and economic development; on the other hand, more critical voices emphasise the precarity, insecurity and poverty inherent in many creative careers, with some suggesting that creative workers are in fact a dystopian harbinger of future working practices for large swathes of the population.
