It is possible to envisage a new phase for creative economy research, especially in regard to the focus on working lives.
This comes about in the light of long-term decisive neo-liberalisation through arts and cultural worlds, economic austerity, high rates of unemployment and semi-employment in the sector across Europe, and with this the entrenchment of ‘precarite’.This afternoon event allows us to share perspectives for researching creative labour process in a cross-sectoral frame.
Of key significance will be the intersection of methodological reflection with conceptual advance. We will open the event with a short paper from Prof Keith Negus (Goldsmiths and CREATe) who has been investigating musicians at work. This will be followed by first panel session which will be focussing on quantitative work currently being undertaken on aspects of creative economy, while the second panel session will provide some close attention to issues around interviews with auteurs, ‘studio visits’ and affect in research.
The final plenary talk will be given by Don Slater (LSE), Jo Entwistle (Kings)and Mona Sloane (LSE) from their LSE-based Configuring Light research study.
