Why should we have creative cities, if there is no creative individual, since no one can appreciate their beauty of resourcefulness, open-mindedness and reflexivity?

At the very first place, if there is no creative individuals, who is to take intellectual risk as their own challenge, and bring about or create the difference that make a city unique and charming

We of course do not expect everyone in the city to be innovative and look at things with fresh perspectives. However creative urban life is usually the product of the creatives who are strategically grouped-up and collaborate.

Sometime, a few of such creative individuals can bring about the wonders. According to Charles Landry, author of the Popular book Creative City: A toolkit for Urban Innovators, Barcelona, Glasgow and Emscher, are some of that cities. 

Besides the synergy among the creatives, Landry argues, we also need the common people to test, pilot, adapt, deploy and explain. I other words, people who can put the ideas to work. There is where the leadership plays a vital role.
