  • Resilience practice/thinking - connects to CP's identity - changes...

Some questions for consideration:

  • In Cultural Workers Throw Down Your Tools - the Metropolis on Strike, there is discussion about how the city channels social relations, enabling some and disabling others. How does CP enable/disable certain types of social relations?
  • I've been chatting to Kuba about the need for self-denial - how this is to some degree necessary for self-preservation - What are we denying in CP?
  • I've been thinking about Stephen and Anya's reflections that Florida's work on the creative class is not just a theorisation of the changing nature of economic production and social structure but that it's become a managerial tool - based on performativity. So what does it mean to locate CP within the broader context of changing economic production and social structuring? How does CP embody these changes? How does it resist them?
  • Questions about autonomy: Stephen and Anya remind us that 'In the metropolitan factory the cultural worker who thinks that she is autonomous simply because there is no foreman barking orders is just as capable of having her passionate labour co–opted, perhaps all the more deeply in so far as the labourer’s discipline is self–imposed and thus made partially imperceptible.' p.69 - What's imperceptible in CP? In my own practice?
  • Questions about communities of evaluation: Stephen and Anya remind us that creative class is a social position that formalizes the process for drawing on the collective wealth and creativity of the metropolis and turns it into a mechanism for capitalist development. Is this a useful way of thinking about CP's work on communities of evaluation - and their potential critique?
