The restless dynamism of the contemporary creative economy requires ongoing empirical study, theorisation and critical reflection. This introductory chapter outlines how this book contributes to existing studies, debates and knowledge by focusing on three key tensions 1) The tension between individual and collaborative creative practices, 2) The tension between tradition and innovation, and 3) The tension between isolated and interconnected spaces of creativity. It also shares the story of the European Colloquium on Culture, Creativity and Economy (CCE Network), previews the nine empirical chapters and suggests some avenues for further research.
