Urban cultural movements and the struggle for alternative creative spaces

The project will seek to provide new social scientific explanations and theories of cultural-based urban movements and activities. It will also produce illustrative case studies of struggles over alternative creative space and provide policy relevance for a number of “crunch issues” cities face such as social polarisation. The plan is to explore the degree to which anti-gentrification, anti-tourist and anti-creative protests in cities such as Berlin and Barcelona are developing in other urban locations. The study will also investigate what has happened to many alternative cultural venues in cities post anti-squatting and anti-rave legislation, looking at the closure of famous sites, the incorporation of others and the development of new types of spaces and struggles.
