À propos de l'événement

The concept of creative industries has become a policy discourse topic of high interest over the last few decades. Creative industries use creative tools and skills as the main inputs in generating meaning, contents, and aesthetic attributes, and are characterized by scattered and fluid networks of creative producers. The collective actions from institutionalization are associated with the geographical agglomeration and political territories. The co-agglomeration of small and medium-sized firms can benefit from geographical and cognitive proximity, which is crucial for interaction opportunities, diversity of complementary skills, and stimulating tacit knowledge transfer. The key component of tacit knowledge transfer is a dependence on urban settings and the environment. In emerging market countries, the rise of creative industry policies has been inconsistent and lacking a solid foundation. Therefore, this research focuses on the convergence between economic development and urban development in creative industries in emerging markets, using Bangkok as a case-study. Path dependency of institutional and spatial formation are required to address a convergence or divergence tendency on spatial disparities. The capital city has the high accumulation of creative industries agglomeration, which contrast to the rest of the country. However, the agglomeration in intra-urban scale points the contradiction between centric plan versus actual polycentric agglomeration due to the missing link in decentralization process is the absence of responsible agencies who transfer the policy to tangible outcome. Research Findings highlight the dilemma between the national government to local governance in promoting the creative ecosystem.
