IFKAD 2017 Special Tracks



TRACK TITLE:
Knowledge Management and Innovation in Creative Sectors and Ecosystems: Collaborations and Co-Creation
DESCRIPTION:
Our proposal for track is based on the analysis of new forms of knowledge management and innovation, which are based on collaboration and co-creation between various actors and sectors. We have seen various forms of collective action for various objectives, whether it be simple networking, crowd-funding, crowd-sourcing, or integration of IT,etc. Processes of innovation are more and more based on knowledge collection, interaction between players, management and exploitation. We want to look at the impacts of these changes in specific sectors, that is creative sectors and emergent ecosystems.
In these sectors, collaboration and participation in production are nothing new (think of theater, film, audiovisual and TV, IT, multimedia and gaming, design, fashion, music, and many other creative and artistic productions, including some forms of contemporary art and manifestations).
Theoretical papers are also very welcome, particularly if they reflect on the theory of creativity, innovation, open innovation, creative workers and creative cities.

Amongst the possible themes, let us mention the following, which serve only as guides and are not restrictive:
  • Management of innovation in creative sectors and ecosystems (theater, film, audiovisual and TV, IT, multimedia and gaming, design, fashion, music, and many other creative and artistic productions, including some forms of contemporary art and manifestations);
  • Analysis of the creative processes in creative sectors and ecosystems (ibid.);
  • Analysis of the various theories of creativity, and in particular how the creative sectors question these theories, or their application;
  • Analysis of the various theories of innovation and in particular how the creative sectors question these theories, or their application;
  • Analysis of specific creative and cultural careers;
  • Analysis of the support organizations and political programs that foster creative/innovative clusters and ecosystems;

KEYWORDS:
innovation, creativity, creative sectors, clusters, emergent ecosystems, artistic careers, cultural careers, creative clusters, cultural environment, etc.
