Cultural Dynamics, Scenes and Urban Fabric
June 22-23, 2023 Angers (FRANCE)
Overspill, sensory fabric and authenticity invite us to reinvest the idea of the creative city by developing a singular attention to the idiosyncratic character of the relations between modes of production, consumption and narration of situated artistic and cultural activities and the territorial dynamics in which they are embedded. How can cities built on the model of the creative city evolve to accompany the transitions, notably ecological and economic, that the health, climate and geopolitical crises have made more necessary than ever? How can we transform an attractive city based on totemic investments (flagships) into a desirable and hospitable city which multiplies the axes of resonance between its different components? What models of urban governance can we imagine for these transitions? How can cultural and creative activities accompany the “de-metropolisation” of territories?
