Collective residencies / Beyond the Creative City: managing local arts, culture and place / Olot


From Monday, 5 June 2023 to Monday, 12 June 2023

Research Associate, School of Arts Languages and Cultures, University of Manchester
Uk and Germany


Postdoctoral Research Associate supporting the Cultural Industries Policy and Evidence Centre and Creative Manchester. Research exploring the role of place within the institutional logics of the cultural sector. Interested in the relationships between cultural organisations located in cities and their counterparts located in the satellite towns on their peripheries. Previously postdoctoral fellow at the University of Leeds and Research Associate with the Centre for Cultural Value.


Working with interdisciplinary colleagues interested in the role of culture and creativity in the economic regeneration of towns and cities. I will be developing new research avenues for understanding the role of cultural governance in building local capacity for meaningful local regeneration. This work will be informed by interviews and social network data gathered from interviews conducted prior to the residency and explores inequities of power created by the creative city model.

The residency was wonderful. It provided a unique opportunity to bring together key international academics in one space for writing and discussion. The use of the meeting rooms and hotel facilities enabled both formal and informal work and conversation.

Over all the residency was hugely productive allowing people to concentrate on crucial reading and writing and knowledge exchange activities.

The residency is located in a really beautiful setting conducive to reflection and concentration.

The opportunities that the residency afforded both in terms of knowledge exchange and as a place to meet and write were invaluable. The proximity to Barcelona also provided important networking opportunities with key colleagues in the field. This was a truly invaluable experience which we would recommend to any networks of academics – and we hope we will be able to return in the future.

We wish Faberllull every success for the future and hope we will be back again.
