Publisher: [Vancouver] : Creative City Network of Canada : Centre of Expertise on Culture and Communities, 2007Description: 24 p.Series: Working paper (Centre of Expertise on Culture and Communities): 5Online resources: E-link Summary: This paper explores the contributions of academic research and professional planning literature to understanding various approaches to, and issues involved in, planning for cultural infrastructure on a municipal or regional scale. Three key analytical frameworks emerge from the literature: planning perspectives on cultural infrastructure, planning approaches to cultural infrastructure, and development strategies for providing cultural infrastructure. The paper suggests that a broadly based, long-term planning approach for cultural infrastructure at a municipal or regional scale would help to achieve balance and coordination among these perspectives, approaches, and development strategies and help address key issues and challenges such as: (1) broadly defining cultural infrastructure and its interests, (2) building organizational and system capacities, (3) addressing issues of access and diversity, (4) considering various planning scales and coordinating planning efforts, (5) mediating potentially competing interests, and (6) balancing development strategies for providing cultural infrastructure.
