Here is the overview from the programme:

This roundtable explores implications of “ordinary cities” (Amin and Graham, 1997), “small cities” (Van Heur, 2010), and “cold spots, crap towns and cultural deserts” (Gilmore, 2013) for creative city futures. Taking Southampton as a case study, it asks academic, industry and community-focused participants in the city’s cultural regeneration to critically reflect on navigating the values and material realities of the ‘creative city’-in-the-making.
