Abstract

The purpose of this report is to capture the creative city experience in everyday terms, drawing on empirical research with creative workers and residents in two creative cities: Leicester and London. The intention is to subject the notion of the creative city construct to further scrutiny and to provoke wider debate about the design, practices, and ambitions of a creativity city within the context of a city’s economy and society. The cities of Leicester and London were selected to represent distinct creative cities with different outlooks, policy focus, and behaviours. There is a tendency in the literature and policy to use Creative Cities as an amorphous term, which assumes the same behaviour and impact, whilst in practice, a taxonomy of different creative cities would be beneficial.
