Over the last several years the rhetoric around "creativity" and the "creative class" has been embraced by both governments, NGO's and many in the arts community. While creativity is positive there are deeper questions that we should ask about what this rhetoric upholds and reproduces. In this episode we explore these questions with Max Haiven. Max is the Canada Research Chair in Culture, Media and Social Justice at Lakehead University in Northwest Ontario and director of the ReImagining Value Action Lab (RiVAL).
