First published in 1999, this book goes beyond the standard economic tools used to evaluate the effectiveness of arts in redevelopment processes. It assumes that the sectors involved in the process of arts-led community revitalization (artists, non-profit organizations, government and for-profit firms) act upon the economic structure and initiate a resurgence path. This assumption allows us to study the political and economic interaction among these sectors, understand their incentives and define and explore their boundaries. This book explores the 1) cultural and regeneration reasons for revitalization; 2) sources of funds; 3) political interaction; 4) definition and estimation of output; 5) evaluation of output; 6) estimation of coefficients and multipliers effects obtained from input-output tables.


’…a useful contribution to the economic geography of an understudied city…as a work on the importance of the arts in urban redevelopment it is more appealing and anyone interested in the measurement of cultural strategies in urban change and an empirical investigation with a quantitative bias will find it interesting.’ Environment and Planning ’The book does give a useful and up-to-date review of the application of economic methodology to the analysis of arts/cultural activities…will be of interest to those concerned with modelling the role of the arts in urban economic development and redevelopment.’ Journal of Regional Science
