Full description and registration is available on the website.
Crowdfunding is arguably a local phenomenon with international potential. Creators often remain largely constrained in their local environments yet expecting to move out of small cultural productions. This rather locally-restrained view finds a connection with vast empirical evidence that shows how crowdfunding reinforces local ties, clusters, close social networks, hence relying upon local endowment (Agrawal et al., 2011; 2015; Hui et al., 2014; Lin & Viswanathan, 2016; Mendes da Silva et al., 2016; 2018; Breznitz and Noonan, 2020). This presentation will delve into aspects related to the economic geography of crowdfunding and its relations to various Cultural and Creative Industries. We will delve into the differences amongst sectors and the outreach of crowdfunding campaigns as a way to analyze the economic characteristics of cultural goods shared via crowdfunding. Moreover, the presentation will delve into the characteristics of rewards offered by cultural crowdfunding campaigns: their experience good characteristics, and endorsement signals. This sheds light on one of the most innovative funding forms for the cultural and creative industries, its limitations, and future research agenda.
