“It is about overcoming the economist”
At the 2019 International Conference on “The Future Relevance of the Creative Economies: Familiar and New Narratives,” there was unanimous agreement that while the significance of the cultural and creative industries, and their funding eligibility, are beyond question, they cannot be measured exclusively based on economic principles. Discussing the case of Barcelona, Francesca Bria’s lively lecture illustrated that although the difference between creative professionals, business and public administration and their logics may prove to be an obstacle, this can be overcome.
