Space, Place and the Creative Economy

The ‘Space, Place and the Creative Economy’ research theme encompasses the transdisciplinary investigation of, and experimentation within, the geographies, places and spaces of the creative and cultural economy.

Theme Overview

Our spatial scales of interest range from global geographies of innovation to hyper-local experiences. We will actively seek to collaborate with Coventry city and region (and Coventry University Group campuses and hubs globally) as mutual sites of research, exploration and learning.
