promoting entrepreneurial state
- goal: ^ul]vPo]Ào]Ç(}]ÀÁ}l(}v]À]vµÇ_
- question: who are real creative class?
x no coherent group identity but tend to focus on upper-middle class
professional
x question: what kind of artists also?
¾ not necessarily very inclusive
¾ probably artists that are willing to parallel their interests with larger corporations

x interurban competition
¾ gentrification (displaced the marginalized and lack of affordable housing)
¾ upper-middle class consumption driven city
¾ city branding and marketing
criticism: spent abundance of funding on branding and marketing, when it can be diverted
towards social welfare, community housing, which is much more beneficial to the society

Critiques on Multiculturalism
- the right, Conservative:
for encouraging a tribalism that challenges any national unity
x promoting segregating in our communities

- Post-Colonial deconstructive approach:
for posing essentialized cultural difference that actually exists in creolized and
hybridized form
x people always interaction with }Z(}o}vP]uU^µZv]]Ç_}v[Æ]
- the left, Marxist, Radical Feminist, Anti-Racist:
for neglecting the most simplified inequalities that exist in multicultural society

crosses gender race and class
x before we could/should move on to discuss true multiculturalism with
maximal cultural differences
