Dealing with Creators

DealingWithCreators_175x200

Dealing with Creators is an interdisciplinary theme that examines both traditional and contemporary forms of creativity.

The theme aims to uncover the hidden lives of creators, and in doing so put them at the centre of discussions on the creative economy. The theme will forward existing research projects on creator remuneration streams and contracting practices, as well as expanding into understudied and underserved markets of “unlikely” creators.
