Curators of Cultural Enterprise is based on the authors' fieldwork inside Cultural Enterprise Office (CEO), a small Scottish agency that supports creative businesses. For a year, the research team had access to all aspects of CEO's work, getting to grips with its routines, relationships with clients, and its place in the wider policy landscape. The researchers regularly discussed their findings with the staff in the course of their investigation. The book considers the rise of creative economy policy-making in the UK and how it was adopted in Scotland. It traces the development of CEO as a new cultural intermediary and how it had to adapt its business model to changing circumstance. This account concludes with questions about the future of such support bodies.
