Abstract and Keywords

This article discusses the evolving role of art and culture in urban planning and economic development. It explains that the cultural industries attract skilled labor, generate tourist dollars, and produce jobs and revenue in their own right. The article argues that while the use of unconventional modes and institutions in the industrial activities of the arts hinder research, they also enable us to apply innovative techniques and theories from other disciplines in our efforts to study art and culture.

Keywords: art, culture, urban planning, economic development, cultural industries, skilled labor, innovative techniques
