Seminar on “Crowding and Collaboration Networks for Cultural Economy”

The Permanent Seminar on Communication and Culture Policies on “Agglomeration and Collaboration Networks for the Cultural Economy”, with Karina Poli Lima da Cunha, will take place on December 9 at 4 pm in the ICS Meeting Room.

In this seminar the researcher will seek to present her postdoctoral study, having as an initial hypothesis that the field of Cultural and Creative Production is made up of two subfields: a subfield of cultural production and a subfield of innovation production.

In a comparative project between the reality of Brazil and the United Kingdom, Karina Poli Lima da Cunha has conducted, in the last two years, 10 case studies with Creative Hubs located in São Paulo, London and Birmingham. In the first phase of his work, she sought to recognize the profiles of agents working in the Hubs, their relationship and how they access economic capital, their interests, their capital exchanges and their position in relation to the field. cultural and creative production.

At a later stage, the researcher extended her research to the European universe. “The objective of the new scope is to apply the same category of analysis to develop a comparative study between the Creative Hubs in South America (Brazil, Argentina and Colombia) and Europe (United Kingdom, France and Portugal) and to observe the Hubs in their contexts regional, national and local”, she explains.

At the seminar, Karina Poli Lima da Cunha will also present the project she is currently developing, which comparatively analyzes the Hubs from the same territories located in Hackney Wick (London, United Kingdom) and Perus (Sao Paulo, Brazil) to observe the Hubs in a local and national context. According to the researcher, “during this stage, we will be able to collect data from the local analysis of Hackney Wick’s territory and collect data to analyze the European Creative Hubs, which will be essential for comparing Creative Hubs from different continents, as well as proposed territorial comparison”.

Karina Poli Lima da Cunha also aims to verify the convergence or separation between the subfields of cultural production and innovation circumscribed by the public policies of the United Kingdom and Brazil and finalize the research with an in-depth analysis between the two countries.
