Abstract

Planning, Practice & Research, Vol. 19, No. 1, pp. 3–31, February 2004 ARTICLE Cultural Quarters as Mechanisms for Urban Regeneration. Part 2: A Review of Four Cultural Quarters in the UK, Ireland and Australia JOHN MONTGOMERY Introduction This article is Part 2 of a longer work whose aim is to evaluate the concept of the cultural quarter as an approach to urban regeneration. Part 2 is largely a review of practice in the form of case-study evaluation of four cultural quarters. It follows on from Part 1 (Montgomery, 2003), which provided the conceptual- isation and literature overview. The basic argument thus far is that successful cultural quarters will share the attributes of good urban places in general, offering beneficial and self-sustaining combinations of Activity, Form and Meaning. They will, moreover, be places of dynamism, new work and meaning, where culture is produced and/or consumed. Where they are successful, cultural quarters should stimulate new ideas, and become places where new products and new opportunities can be explored, discussed, tried and tested. Cities provide the flow of people and the markets necessary to support viable cultural activity locally, i.e. in cinemas, galleries, theatres and music clubs. This activity can help reinvigorate
