Making Meaning, Making Money: Directions for the Arts and Cultural Industries in the Creative Age (Hardback)

Despatched in 2 business days.


The arts have rarely been at the heart of so many policy discussions in so many places at once. All over the world politicians and artists have been making a strong case for the social and commercial value of 'culture.' It is found in debates about education, industrial policy, criminal justice and community wellbeing. As 'creative industries,' it is part of international competitiveness and the future of our cities and towns, from Shanghai to Sheffield to Shepparton. Many practitioners and advocates have welcomed culture's new prominence in policy discourse and the new markets it offers for cultural production. Others, however, see a danger that instrumental justifications for cultural funding risk overlooking the intrinsic qualities of culture, reducing it to an 'input' and blunting any radical edges. This book asks: are we are at 'a new moment' for cultural policy? Leading international thinkers from countries including Australia, Britain and the United States provide a timely overview of these issues, debating and discussing the directions that cultural policy should take in the future.

Making Meaning, Making Money will be of value to artists, policy makers, cultural managers and planners who are involved in the practices, processes and decision making that constitute contemporary cultural industries and shape emerging cultural economies.
