Abstract

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.

Keywordsregionalism; creative communities; regional creativity; restoring communities
ANZSRC Field of Research 2020369999. Other creative arts and writing not elsewhere classified
