DESIGN, INNO­VA­TI­ON, AND RURAL CREA­TI­VE PLA­CES

Crea­ti­ve class theo­ry exp­lains the posi­ti­ve rela­ti­ons­hip bet­ween the arts and com­mer­cial inno­va­ti­on as the mutu­al attrac­tion of artists and other crea­ti­ve workers by an unob­ser­ved crea­ti­ve milieu. This stu­dy explo­res alter­na­ti­ve theo­ries for rural set­tings, by ana­ly­zing estab­lish­ment-level sur­vey data com­bi­ned with data on the local arts sce­ne. The stu­dy iden­ti­fies the local con­tex­tu­al fac­tors asso­cia­ted with a strong design ori­en­ta­ti­on, and esti­ma­tes the impact that a strong design ori­en­ta­ti­on has on the local eco­no­my.
