Creative Industries

Colourful Fabric in Multiple Dimensions

In recent decades, a new academic field has emerged in the United States and across Europe that links two previously unrelated disciplines: art and economics. Editors Giep Hagoort and Rene Kooyman have collected in this volume several articles from their colleagues in the Faculty of Art and Economics at the Utrecht School of the Arts that set out the parameters of the field and explain their current research and the impact that these innovations will have on the future of this relatively young area of inquiry. Creative Industries will be essential reading for anyone interested in joining academic dialogues concerned with creative and cultural entrepreneurship, cultural management, creative industries, and creative processes.
