Art and Culture after the Creative City

On Friday, September 10, Caradt professor Sebastian Olma will share his vision for the future of the creative city at the symposium Art and Culture after the Creative Cityarrow in Port Adelaide, Australia. This symposium is part of Resetarrow, an eight-month programme of events involving art and culture practitioners, policymakers and academics from all three universities in South Australia. The deepening crisis in arts and culture was only made worse by the pandemic, and its current failure to secure its value as an essential part of our democratic society has long roots. It seeks new ideas and practices to help rethink the value of art and culture and re-establish their place in public policy and in our everyday citizenship.

‘Our research group investigates the role artists, designers and cultural producers in general can play in developing the aesthetics and poetics of a desirable future.’

Sebastian Olma is professor Cultural and Creative Industries. He works for the Expertise Centre Art, Design and Technology.

Research Group: Cultural and Creative Industries

The research group Cultural and Creative Industries investigates the role of artists and designers as creative innovators and drivers of social and economic change.

What economic models are required by artists and designers to create a meaningful practice within the aesthetic, social, and economic intentions of the cultural and creative industries? What skills sets are required for those artists and designers who don’t just want to follow movements, but actually shape novel social and economic models of the future?
