Platform Papers 44: Cultural Precincts - Appreciation or Consumption

MacDonnell, Justin

$16.00

An estimated $250 billion will be spent worldwide in the current decade on creating 'cultural precincts': collections of buildings with some arts-related function. Today, most Australian cities are building their precincts in the guise of urban renewal, tourist destinations, residential development, arts promotion and 'liveability'. Does any of it mean anything? There's evidence that they sell more tickets but none that their art is better. Property values rise but are artists better rewarded? Does the public have a richer experience or just a more convenient one? Are cultural precincts another commodifying of the arts? Is there a better way?
