Made to measure? Developing a creative sector index for the northern periphery of Europe

May 26, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Location: CA110 (SAC Room), Cairnes Building, NUI Galway Galway Ireland

Speaker(s): Dr Aisling Murtagh

Affiliation: Geography

Organised by: Whitaker Institute

Creative Momentum is a transnational project supporting the creative sector across Europe’s northern edge.  One aspect of the project involves developing a creative sector index to measure the creative economy in peripheral regions. In this seminar we’ll explore the process of developing an index, exploring issues such as selection of indicators, data sources and data comparability across regions, as well as some preliminary findings.  Creative Momentum is co-funded by the EU’s Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme.

This seminar is one of a series of seminars in the 2016 Whitaker Ideas Forum.  Dr Murtagh will be representing the Creative, Liveable and Sustainable Communities Research Cluster.
