Contributing to the creative economy imaginary: universities and the creative sector
This paper explores the relationship between the creative economy and universities. As funders, educators and research bodies, universities have a complicated relationship with the creative economy. They propagate its practice, ‘buying in’ to the rhetoric and models of creative value, particularly in teaching, research and knowledge exchange. ‘Third mission’ activities also play a role, seeking to affect change in the world outside academia – through collaboration, partnerships, commercialisation and social action.
