Introduction [to Creative communities: regional inclusion & the arts]

McDonald, Janet and Mason, Robert (2015) Introduction [to Creative communities: regional inclusion & the arts]. In: Creative communities: regional inclusion & the arts. Intellect Books, Bristol, United Kingdom, pp. 2-10. ISBN 978-1-78320-512-7


This is the first major collection to reimagine and analyse the role of the creative arts in building resilient and inclusive regional communities. Bringing together Australia's leading theorists in the creative industries, as as as case studies from practitioners working in the creative and performing arts and new material from targeted research projects, the book reconceptualizes the very meaning of regionalism and the position - and potential - of creative spaces in non-metropolitan centres.
