Seminar "Culture and urban development: toward a entrepreneurial city?"
We are pleased to invite you to the Seminar "Culture and urban development: toward a entrepreneurial city?" given by Professor of Sociology João Teixeira Lopes (Universidad de Oporto - Faculdade de Letras) and organized by Centre for the Study of Culture, Politics and Society (CECUPS). 
The seminar focuses on how culture is used as a tool of strategic planning and consensus building, showing the strategies developed by cities in a context of global competitiveness. Teixeira Lopes tackles the problematic from a critical perspective of the relationship between "classes, territories, districts and creative industries" and proposes a model of uses of culture in urban public space settled on an alternative concept of cultural democracy.
