Nicole Foster Creative Economy Research Fellow | UWE

Nicole Foster

Nicole Foster explores the impact art, culture and creativity play in the production of urban spaces – their built environments, symbolic, affective and moral economies, relationships with diverse communities, and interactions with local governance and development interests. Nicole completed her PhD in Urban Planning and Public Policy at the University of Texas at Arlington where she conducted participatory research in tactical creative placemaking and analysed the relationship between the presence of creative industries and the regeneration and gentrification of US urban neighbourhoods.

Her work has been featured on the London School of Economics’ US Centre blog, The Atlantic’s CityLab, as well as in the Journal of Urban Affairs, Urban Studies, and the Journal of Planning Education and Research.
