Researching Cultural Enterprise Office



Vus chapter introduces Cultural Enterprise Office (CEO), the book’s object of study. Based in Glasgow, CEO is situated in the wider UK ‘creative economy’ policy framework and its Scottish variant. Studies of intermediaries engaged in cultural business support for ‘creatives1 are rare. How their performance is formed by the wider institutional landscape and shifting ideas and practices has been little examined. Our research has itself been shaped by the current vogue for knowledge exchange between academics and those they research.
