Dr. Luka’s academic research focuses on the concept of creative citizenship to investigate how civic, culture and business sectors are networked in the digital age, including the intricate ways that governments, universities, corporations and socio-cultural enterprises connect. The concept of creative citizenship established by her previous research helps analyse cultural industries, creative labour policy and practices, and encourages original forms and expressions of artistic practice. Mary Elizabeth (M.E) is an award-winning digital media producer-director, with two decades of leadership experience in the culture sector, including as current Chair of the Board for Arts Nova Scotia (the provincial arts council).
