This is the first title in a series of short publications that seek to encapsulate key agendas and thought movements that shape cities today and which will have an impact on their future. The city faces an escalating crisis that cannot be solved by a business as usual approach. Complex problems including the challenge of living together with great diversity and difference, addressing the sustainability agenda or global financial crisis are some of the future priorities for creativity. In 'The Origins & Futures of the Creative City', Charles Landry states that curiosity, imagination and creativity are the pre-conditions for inventions and innovations to develop, as well as to solve, intractable urban problems and to create interesting opportunities. Unleashing the creativity of citizens, organizations and the city is an empowering process. It is a new form of capital and a currency in its own right.
