Need for inter-sector cooperation

Charles Landry

Now the problem with all these discussions about creativity, the creative city, the creative industries and so on is: although there's a lot of evidence about it, this sector always needs more evidence than any other sectors. If someone is building a road they don't say: "Prove to me the value of your road building." So this is one major problem. 

The other major problem is, of course, that this sector is important but there are also other sectors that are important as well. It is not the only sector in the universe. And it is very important for this sector to talk to other sectors that have nothing to do with them and to offer them self-referential. So that's one point I would highlight.
