Simon Moreton is Senior Research Fellow at the Creative Economies Lab. His work looks at how political and economic agency is ascribed to the concept of ‘creativity’. He is interested in grassroots and ecosystemic approaches to building diverse and post-capitalist models for the creative economy. He is currently Co-Investigator on the Bristol and Bath Creative R&D (AHRC) programme, where he heads up its evaluation and research strategy. He is also leading on work packages exploring alternative models for the creative economy in the University of Bristol-led ‘My World’ programme, a £30M investment in Bristol and Bath’s creative infrastructure. He is also an artist, drawing and writing about everyday life, focusing on the geographies and histories of memory, and our relationship to the landscape.
