QUALITATIVE INTERNET RESEARCH ON CULTURAL AND CREATIVE SPILLOVERS. A CASE STUDY OF CONCORDIA DESIGN CENTRE IN POZNAN, POLAND
The aim of the paper is to present part of the research conducted by Altum Foundation, realised with full involvement of scholars affiliated to Institute of Cultural Studies at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan. The research (Poprawski, Chojnacki, & Firych, 2015) formed part of an international project “Testing innovative methods to evaluate cultural and creative spillovers in Europe” initiated by European Research Partnership on Cultural and Creative Spillovers and coordinated by European Centre for Creative Economy (ECCE) in Dortmund. The general goal was to test Concordia Design Centre in Poznan (CDC) as a case study on the cultural and creative spillover phenomenon. The article withdraws the research’s most relevant parts related to qualitative Internet research methods (specifically findings from Mediated Discourse Analysis (MDA) and semiotics) and outlines the mechanisms as well as fields of relevance of CDC’s spillover effect in several different contexts. The paper concludes with methodological reflections.
