CREATIVE CITY INDEX
Client: Dept. for Manufacturing, Innovation, Trade, Resources & Energy (DMITRE), Adelaide City Council & Playford City Council
Brecknock Consulting worked in collaboration with UK based creative city theorist Charles Landry and Margie Caust, on an audit of creativity across metropolitan Adelaide. The team “took the Creative Pulse” of the city through online surveys, focus groups and one on one meetings with the creative sector to establish the strengths and weaknesses of Adelaide as a place that nurtures, supports, harnesses and expresses its creativity and innovation.
Based on the feedback from the creative sector a series of opportunities were established by Charles and the team that are aimed at “harnessing the collective imagination” of Adelaide. These opportunities are now being explored by the project partners in order to put strategies and actions in place to move the agenda forward.
