The key argument of the chapter is that we need to consider the cultural sector and civil society as key catalysts of creativity that fosters democratic change. By studying how the two spheres cross-pollinate we may learn important lessons on how to advance creative processes for democratic change in other sectors of society. Such studies are key because they underpin how meaning-making visions can be turned into practice, and because they can demonstrate cultural resources as fundamental to democracy, not as an appendix to social and political processes. Based on an outline of recent theories of creativity, the chapter offers brief case analyses from the DREAM and Our Museum R&D programmes to document how museums may foster joint creativity for democratic transformations.
