Abstract: Cultural and creative quarters are a hub of artistic, cultural, and creative dynamics, networks, places, and activities in cities. Born spontaneously, these quarters are now used by public authorities as a tool for urban change and tourism promotion of urban spaces. There are many issues at stake: first, artistic creation, access to culture for all, and social cohesion; second, atmosphere, image, and attractiveness of cities; third, gentrification, inequalities, and social fragmentation. Through a resolutely synthetic and illustrated scientific analysis, the author sheds light on the realities, tensions, and ambivalences of these quarters thanks to an immersion in the cities of Paris, Nantes, Shanghai, Montreal, and many others around the world. This book is intended for researchers, teachers, students, cultural players, urban planners, public decision-makers and, more broadly, anyone interested in urban issues, the future of cities and the role of artistic and creative activities in the development of urban spaces.
