The Arts, Design and Culture in Cities
This series seeks to publish studies from a diverse range of art, design and cultural studies practitioners, ideally interested in the relationship between their disciplines and any aspect of the built environment. Examples of themes that we would welcome include, but are not limited to: graffiti art, urban music scenes, digital arts and locative media, cultural institutions in the city, dance in urban contexts, cityscape photography, and metropolitan graphic signage. Non-built environment studies are also welcome.
