This paper is about local Creative and Cultural Economy Intermediaries (CCEIs). There is a body of work that looks at other larger organisational constructs as intermediaries, however this is not the focus of this paper. For the sake of conceptual clarity and keeping in line with examining work in the spaces and places of the CCE, intermediaries are mainly individuals and/or very small organisations with at most two employees. These individuals act as local conduits between a number of stakeholders, sectors, subsectors and organisational activities that are crucial to the perpetuation of the local creative and cultural economy. This paper is part of a larger forthcoming piece study on CCEIs, but marks an initial foray into the increasing complexities that underpin and characterise creative and cultural work.
