  6. 7. Creativity Culture Culture’s the “creative”, stuff that’s recognised and supported by society and society’s organisational constructs.
  7. 8. Culture Culture’s the “creative”, stuff that’s recognised and supported by society and society’s organisational constructs. It’s as if all of the creative stuff that happens is considered by society and its constructs (local authorities, funding bodies, government etc.)
  8. 9. All Creative Stuff Culture’s the “creative”, stuff that’s recognised and supported by society and society’s organisational constructs . It’s as if all of the creative stuff that happens is considered by society and its constructs (local authorities, funding bodies, government etc.)

  31. 32. Creativity Culture Heritage It’s not nice, but it’s certainly creative
  32. 33. Creativity Culture Heritage At the moment it’s here
  33. 34. Creativity Culture Heritage In a year or two someone like Ekow Eshun at the ICA will put out a call (maybe on MySpace) for a Festival of Happy Slaps
  34. 35. Creativity Culture Heritage That festival will live here
  35. 36. Creativity Culture Heritage Let’s call it “Creative Culture”
  36. 37. Creativity Culture Heritage They’ll do it for a couple of years, then maybe get a grant from the Arts Council or Westminster City Council. They may even have some sort of “representative” or “advocacy” organisation
  37. 38. Creativity Culture Heritage At that point, the Festival will live here
  38. 39. Creativity Culture Heritage After a few years, the festival will be well established.
  39. 40. Creativity Culture Heritage There might even be a schism
  40. 41. Creativity Culture Heritage As some people want to represent “the old school”, and others complain that the Happy Slapping world has moved on
  41. 42. Creativity Culture Heritage Their audience might be aging. They’ll will likely still have their grant-funding in place
  42. 43. Creativity Culture Heritage But by this time it may be supplanted by an “Organisational Development” grant, so they can “Develop Audiences” or maybe “Manage Change”
  43. 44. Creativity Culture Heritage By then, the Festival will live here
  44. 45. Creativity Culture Heritage Let’s call it “Heritage Culture”
  45. 46. Creativity Culture Heritage Eventually there will be a museum of Happy Slaps, or an organisation that exists to preserve the heritage of Happy Slapping (perhaps within a defined and understood vocabulary)
  46. 47. Creativity Culture Heritage This organisation will live here
  47. 48. Creativity Culture Heritage and will play a part in informing new creativity

  57. 58. Creativity Culture Heritage
  58. 59. Creativity Culture Heritage Here are some questions that this model raises
  59. 60. Creativity Culture Heritage <ul><li>In this model, the central circle is the gatekeeper which chooses which creative forms will be drawn into the cultural sphere and play a role in shaping our heritage background. </li></ul>
  60. 61. Creativity Culture Heritage <ul><li>In this model, the central circle is the gatekeeper which chooses which creative forms will be drawn into the cultural sphere and play a role in shaping our heritage background. </li></ul><ul><li>There are value judgements inherent in the process of choice that identifies which new forms of creativity will be supported. </li></ul>
  61. 62. Creativity Culture Heritage <ul><li>In this model, the central circle is the gatekeeper which chooses which creative forms will be drawn into the cultural sphere and play a role in shaping our heritage background. </li></ul><ul><li>There are value judgements inherent in the process of choice that identifies which new forms of creativity will be supported. </li></ul><ul><li>What criteria are used to judge this process? </li></ul>

  64. 65. Creativity Culture Heritage <ul><li>What proportion of support goes to cultural forms that are “creative culture” compared to those which are “heritage culture”? </li></ul>
  65. 66. Creativity Culture Heritage <ul><li>What proportion of support goes to cultural forms that are “creative culture” compared to those which are “heritage culture”? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the effect of this apportioning of resources? </li></ul>
  66. 67. Creativity Culture Heritage <ul><li>The arrow that joins heritage with creativity can be interpreted as the force that keeps heritage organisations examining the wider social context of their work, the narratives that they animate and the communities with whom they communicate. </li></ul>
  67. 68. Creativity Culture Heritage <ul><li>The arrow that joins heritage with creativity can be interpreted as the force that keeps heritage organisations examining the wider social context of their work, the narratives that they animate and the communities with whom they communicate. </li></ul><ul><li>Can the arrow that joins the heritage and creative circle remedy instances where the cultural circle neglects to identify and support creative forms that are later viewed as significant? </li></ul>
  68. 69.

  69. 70. Creativity Culture Heritage <ul><li>And lastly… </li></ul><ul><li>To what extent are cultural gatekeepers (funding bodies, local authorities etc.) interested in fostering creativity and to what extent are they interested in preserving heritage? </li></ul>
  70. 71. Creativity Culture Heritage <ul><li>And lastly… </li></ul><ul><li>To what extent are cultural gatekeepers (funding bodies, local authorities etc.) interested in fostering creativity and to what extent are they interested in preserving heritage? </li></ul><ul><li>How much energy do the gatekeepers spend focussed on seeking out and encouraging new creative forms, practices and trends to bring through this model? </li></ul>
