Fri 24 Jun 13:00-14:00 at Pervasive Media Studio Event Space
Supporting Fair Creative Economies (in Bristol and Bath)
In this talk, Dr Liz Roberts will present work on the Alternatives at Scale project, which identifies opportunities for change and dialogue within the creative sector in the South West UK to create a fairer, creative economy.
This talk will be held in the building and online! Book your free ticket here.
Dr Liz Roberts is a Research Fellow in the Creative Economies Lab, UWE, working on the Bristol+Bath Creative R+D Cluster and MyWorld programme. Liz is a cultural geographer who has worked at the intersection of social science and arts and humanities across a range of interdisciplinary projects. Liz will be presenting work on the Alternatives at Scale project. This project aims to identify opportunities for change and dialogue within the creative sector in the South West UK to create a fairer, more inclusive and sustainable creative economy.
Two review papers will be outlined in this talk: A literature review on alternative economies (post-capitalism, degrowth, diverse economies, doughnut economies, sustainable prosperity) to understand core concepts and lessons that might be learnt for the creative economy, and a review of local economic, cultural and post-pandemic strategies from city council to regional level across Bristol and Bath exploring how the creative economy is positioned alongside economic and sustainability agendas. She will be outlining key findings from these reviews and introducing the forthcoming Fair Creative Economies project running to 2026 (within the MyWorld programme).
Join us online on YouTube Live, or in the building on Friday 24th June 2022 at 1pm for the talk and to take part in the Q and A discussion afterwards.
The lunchtime talks are partly supported by MyWorld, a project led by the University of Bristol to support creative industries in the region.
