I noticed that Eva and HJ were discussing the concept of creativity in the East Asian context. How about this? Singaporean bureaucracy is trying very hard to promote the creative city state.
Recently I am thinking over the notion of creativity and its policies in Korea too. Still very confused, but I am thinking what might have been positive effects when this notion was introduced in public policy. I am sure that some scholars including Austrailian groups think that creative industries policy is a means of progressive intellectual intervention. I am not sure about that and thinking about the conditions under which it can be considered in that way.
Nonetheless, in practice things might be very uninteresting. I am almost inclined to think that creative industries policy in Korea ends up being a small happening without much substantial effect when significant policy measures are rolled back as a result of the governmental change.
