Design: An Emergent Area of Cultural Policy in Montreal

Design: An Emergent Area of Cultural Policy in Montreal Abstract This article examines the development of a design policy in Montreal. It is based on a series of policy documents issued by the municipal administration between 2005 and 2018. The policy was developed in a context in which Montreal is attempting to rebrand itself as a “cultural metropolis.” Therefore, this policy is analyzed in relation to the creative city model. Three aspects of the policy are explored in detail: the vision of design; the support provided to its production, and its reception. The study concludes with a discussion of the increasing commercialization of the urban space and its relation to this policy. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png "The Journal of Arts Management, Law, and Society" Taylor & Francis

Three aspects of the policy are explored in detail: the vision of design; the support provided to its production, and its reception. The study concludes with a discussion of the increasing commercialization of the urban space and its relation to this policy.
