L’articolo analizza gli eventi organizzati dalle industrie digitali come luoghi che favoriscono l’interazione sociale e la creazione di nuovi legami tra i professionisti del settore. Viene in particolare analizzato il quartiere di Shoreditch, East London. L’articolo evidenzia come i luoghi e gli spazi dove tali eventi sono realizzati strutturano fortemente le interazioni e relazioni sociali tra i partecipanti, mettendo in discussione il ruolo della prossimità nei cluster creativi. L’articolo evidenzia inoltre come rapporti ambivalenti con il quartiere rafforzano e sfidano il ruolo della prossimità come fonte di relazioni sociali.


Keywords: Eventi, interazione sociale, reti sociali, industrie creative e digitali, quartiere, spazio.
