Abstract

The role of culture in the reinvention of the post-industrial city has long fascinated urban scholars. Ronan Paddison made contributions to this debate at a time when culture had become something of a strategic orthodoxy. This paper reflects upon the emergence of the so-called creative city and its relationship to broader processes of commodification. It contends that this creativity discourse embellished a partial version of the city as a symbolic (and latterly digital) entity and, in this context, reflects upon Paddison’s broader contribution to our understanding of the city as a multifaceted arena in which social injustice so often thrives.
