RE:Present and ASTON-ish referenced in new text book: "A Modern Guide to Creative Economies"

Annette Naudin, Associate Professor Academic, with responsibility for Learning and Teaching at Birmingham Institute for Media and English (BCU) was the lead academic who evaluated the RE:Present and ASTON-ish programmes in 2016 and 2018 respectively.

Using data from the findings of these two, and other, reports she has written a chapter in "A Modern Guide to Creative Economies" published by Elgar Modern Guides (Edited by Roberta Comunian, King’s College London, UK, Alessandra Faggian, Gran Sasso Science Institute, Italy, Jarna Heinonen, University of Turku, Finland and Nick Wilson, King’s College London, UK).

This Modern Guide initially addresses definitional and methodological challenges, before offering new perspectives on the theory and practice of creative and cultural entrepreneurship, and exploring the role of networks and the importance of place and mobility.

Acclaim for the publication

A Modern Guide to Creative Economies is essential reading for considering and reflecting on how we build healthy, equitable, and sustainable conditions for the creation, celebration, and exchange of human expression. The book, and its collection of brilliant essays, offers fresh insight that will inspire scholars, students, and leaders in arts and culture to ask new and different questions and ultimately to imagine possibilities for not just growing our creative economies, but also for sustaining the humans who are critical for creative expression to thrive.’

Steven Tepper, University of Arizona, US

‘In an age of knowledge and creativity, we can all need a guide to provide a better understanding of how our times work and the challenges we face. This book does the job. It pushes the boundaries of current knowledge to make us better understand creative economies. It also expands the meaning of creativity in the context of cultural development, care, and social justice.’

Charlotta Mellander, Jönköping International Business School, Sweden
