Samenvatting

An important assumption often underlying initiatives
that stimulate the creative industries in deprived
neighbourhoods is that the presence of creative
entrepreneurs contributes to the regeneration of
these neighbourhoods. Besides contributing to
economic development, creative entrepreneurs are
also assumed to bring more ‘buzz’ to the neighbourhood.
However, there is a lot of debate concerning
the actual contribution of such initiatives to urban
regeneration. This thesis contributes to this debate
by investigating the effects of two initiatives stimulating
creative entrepreneurship in the Rotterdam
Afrikaanderwijk, namely the Creative Factory and
Freehouse. The main fi ndings are that the effects of
these initiatives on the neighbourhood have been
very modest and that the socio-economic conditions
in which the various stakeholders had to operate
changed substantially. Therefore these stakeholders
lost interest in the projects. As a result, the guiding
principle of accommodating the creative class became
obsolete - not so much because it failed as a
theory of how cities work, but rather because it lost
its integrative relevance for the stakeholders involved
in the initiatives.
