AbstractHow do arts and cultural planners and policy makers work through the arts to create communities? What do artists need to build a sense of place in their community? This book provides a range of voices of those who have achieved results in geographically and socio-culturally diverse examples selected for their lasting effect in their local community. Developing a Sense of Place provides new models for opening the relationship between the University and its regional partners, explicitly connecting creative, critical and theoretical approaches to civic development. It has three sections: Case-studies of place-making, Models and methods for developing place-making through the arts, and Multidisciplinary approaches to place and contested identities. These draw together case studies and models with underpinning research on the impact of practice on contested identities in Bedford, East Anglia, Edinburgh, Manchester, London, Luton, Plymouth, Wakefield and internationally in Brazil, Europe, Turkey and Zimbabwe amongst others. The book offers a range of viewpoints from the arts strategist, the academic, the practice-researcher and the artist and so will appeal to arts and cultural policy managers, master planners and arts workers through its innovative models from performing arts to architectural design based on location, scale, budget and audience. Developing a Sense of Place will have a wider readership on courses in Human Geography, Cultural Planning, Arts Administration, Business and the Creative industries and is suitable for both undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
