Cities and Communities: Cultural Indicators at the Local Level

Prepared by Nancy Duxbury
Centre of Expertise on Culture and Communities, Ottawa, 2007, 33 pp.

The Centre of Expertise on Culture and Communities, a project of the Creative City Network of Canada in collaboration with the Simon Fraser Uniersity School of Communication through the Centre for Policy Research on Science and Technology (CPROST), has published a workshop report synthesizing the proceedings of its full-day workshop entitled Cities and Communities: Cultural Indicators at the Local Level, held in Ottawa, Canada in November 2006.

In the context of a growing number of initiatives related to cultural indicator development, the workshop brought together many individuals and organizations actively working in this area to discuss their experiences and plans, and to address shared challenges including methodological, content-related, and use-context issues.

The final report and a "key points" document are available for download at www.creativecity.ca/cecc/downloads/indicators-2006/
Report-Indicators.pdf
and www.creativecity.ca/cecc/downloads/
indicators-2006/indicator-rpt-key-points.pdf
respectively.
