How do cities and urban environments nourish creativity?
Network is collaborator to a European research project that aims to study the role of cultural places and creative networks in generating and sustaining the dynamics of local areas.
The project will compare three geographical areas: the North of Paris / Seine-Saint-Denis, East London (Hackney Wick / Fish Island) and the East of Barcelona (Poblenou) to understand how artists and creative practitioners perceive these areas and also how creative practitioners use cultural venues to support their own artistic development.
This project will make it possible to map the key creative places in each of these areas and to better understand the needs of local actors (artists, communities, organizations).
Phase 1 calls for all creatives in Hackney Wick to complete a short survey before the end of June 2021.
