How do we create, value and foster culture and creativity?

Creative People, Products and Places (CP3) is an internationally recognised interdisciplinary research group undertaking high quality collaborative research into culture and creativity at the University of South Australia. Building upon the strong base of world class cultural studies informed research into cultural and creative industries (CCIs) at UniSA, CP3 is concerned with the creative ecosystem of art, media and culture, including its communities, economies, publics, institutions, and values. CP3 focuses on the people who make and participate in art, media and culture, on how products are made and valued, and on the spaces and communities in which this creative ecosystem takes place.

The CP3 team welcomes interest in project collaboration and partnerships. Contact the team for more information.

Sustainable State: Creative Industries 2020

Public seminar, 26 February 2020

The creative industries are being asked to do some heavy economic lifting against a backdrop of dwindling funding for arts and culture, stagnating incomes and declining employment. At the same time, South Australia has been a long-term investor in arts and cultural industries, bequeathing a rich cultural ecosystem to the present-day state. In this public seminar, involving local and international speakers, we address the question: what should a creative industries strategy seek to do in 2020, right here, right now in South Australia? Can the state revive its pioneering role in a new challenging landscape?

Making space for making: New directions for urban cultural policy

Friday 28 February 2020

This half-day seminar examines the present and future of making and manufacturing in the city. While the disappearance of affordable working and living space for creatives has been a pressing issue for over two decades, efforts to address this have rarely looked beyond the provision of studio, co-working and exhibition spaces for visual and performing arts, media, and design. Speakers will share their research and thoughts on these issues, along with potential solutions for the future.
