Resource description

The paper shows that creative producers (businesses and individuals) are sensitive to the externalities of the urban environment, such as the state of public places and the street in particular. However, relation to the street differs for creative producers with different power positions and levels of embeddedness in street life. This suggests attention needs to move beyond the simplistic approaches of “mixed–use” and “vitality” ideals to an understanding of the complexity and continuity inherent in the production of creative spaces with respect to the multiple transactions of both the strong and weak stakeholders involved – the “wolfs” and “lambs.” The example used is the film and television industry in Camden Town, London, in relation to the “experience” economy, drawing on evidence from interviews with producers.
