The idea of creative citizenship emerges through mainstream European and American communitarian thinking in centre-left and centre-right politics around the turn of the millennium, acquiring new urgency and meanings in the political circumstances following the 2008 banking crisis. Simultaneously, the concept intersects with global digital media and other affordances of an increasingly mobile-accessed and globally accessible internet. The title of this book is explained, with reference to the imaginative, poetic and politically charged epic work of Percy Bysshe Shelley: Prometheus Unbound. The interdisciplinary research team’s working methodology, structure and ethos, is described, drawing particular attention to a co-creative working relationship with community partners.
