“The fundamental question for the creative city project is: ‘Can you change the way people and organisations think – and, if so, how?” (Landry 2000)

“… why do many regeneration projects invest in the arts, only to remove skateboarders and street artists from their public spaces, or supplant small independent shops to make way for new developments? It’s a sort of cultural cleansing.” (Havers 2012)
