Abstract

In this chapter, the creative (area) life cycle is conceived as a way of depicting and explaining tensions between hegemonic creative models and local case studies. The creative city of Leicester in the UK reveals tensions not only in performance with star cities such as London but also in performance over time. Leicester’s creative life cycle highlights the local conditions, connections, and drivers of creativity that remind us that not all creative cities and clusters operate uniformly and that growth can be finite.
