The Creative city index : measuring the pulse of the city / by Charles Landry & Jonathan Hyams

By: Landry, Charles.
Hyams, Jonathan.
ISBN: 9781908777027.Edition: 1st ed.Publisher: Bournes Green : Comedia, 2012Description: 59 p.Series: Shorts: 03Summary: The Creative City Index is both a narrative of what great cities are like and explains a method for assessing cities holistically. This helps measure their creative abilities and potential, a precondition for downstream innovations and economic vigour. This strategic tool provides a rounded framework for thinking, so good policies become easier to achieve. Cities need to know how well they are doing and evaluating them is becoming a phenomenon. We live in a world of measurement. We measure wealth and poverty, happiness and depression, whole societies, economies and now even cities. This helps position a city and inspires it to do better. The Index does more than this. Participants join a comparative global dataset. Using a mix of qualitative and quantitative methods, including self-completion online surveys, group sessions, one-to-one interviews and site visits, it combines an internal self-evaluation with a rigorous external assessment. Cities wishing to participate can choose from options: an interactive and motivational presentation; a bespoke workshop; the complete Creative City Index assessment itself; or an extended study focusing on the specific requirements of the city wanting to be reviewed.
