Creative Communities: The cultural benefits of Victoria’s public libraries is a major piece of work of global significance to the international library community. It argues that the cultural benefits of public libraries can be perceived and analysed via six interdependent lenses: public places, cultural spaces, creative incubators, cultural connectors, multicultural mosaic, and the culture of the written and spoken word.
Project Sisu has developed a methodology for applying Creative Communities and the six lenses in practical ways. The Project Sisu team included Annie Talvé and Dr Sally Gray.
