Cross boundaries to produce novelties at the intersection of two creative sectors: the role of intermediaries

Abstract : Since the beginning of the 21 st century, we witness an intensification of cognitive-cultural capitalism (Scott, 2014) due to the ambition of numerous cities to attract members of the « creative class » (Florida, 2002) and cultural, creative and technological activities on their territory to drive their regional economies and promote innovations in potentially related sectors (Frenken et al., 2007). As many of them now face an urban crisis (Florida, 2017), the problem of how to manage the presence of these activities becomes a challenge for the future of cities on the one hand, and for the innovation in cultural and creative sectors on the other hand. In this context, too little have been written on the coexistence of these two sectors in the same city or region. The aim of this paper is to understand more specifically if, and how, two related innovation/epistemic communities belonging to cultural, creative and technological sectors do innovate together ? Our work draws on the idea of boundaries and proximities (Boschma, 2005) between communities belonging to cultural/creative sector on one side, and digital sector on the other side. Boundaries could be crossed and proximities activated by intermediaries, thus favoring collaborations and potentially innovations at the intersection of sectors. These intermediaries are of different types-spaces, places, events, projects and people (Cohendet et al., 2010 ; Lange and Schüßler, 2018 ; Rantisi and Leslie, 2010)-and the uses and practices of these intermediaries depend of some local contexts. We highlight specifically the intermediation processes and the role that can be played by different intermediaries. We also propose to determine which ressources (social, cognitive, spatial
