An Interview with Paul Houghton for the Creative Cities Summit held in Florida, USA in 2005
This was quite an honour to be asked to be a part of the conference which included people like Charles Landry, Carole Colletta and many others. The downside of being in government was that such a trip had to run the gauntlet of minders, gatekeepers and ultimately receive the blessing of the Premier. I didn’t get to go but did this video as a starter for the discussion and got some good feedback on the thinking. This thinking then went into a series of talks I did in Perth called the Economy of Ideas – more on that later.
