ABSTRACT

The work analyzes a European approach on the characteristics of creative cities,
generalizing it to creative territories, contributing three novelties: on the one hand, this idea
is brought to Latin America; In addition, it is discussed in a metropolitan area (city region)
and finally analyzed in the context of communal development policies. In other words, a
proposal for the political creativity of a territory, the Metropolitan District of Quito
(Ecuador), is presented.
The objective of this work will be to determine the elements of communal policy that
facilitate the manifestations of the creative territories, shown in specific indicators, so as to
guide the analysis of the territories' capacity to implement creative programs. To this end,
this paper analyzes a series of experiences at a practical level, which allow us to contrast
a series of indicators that link the aspects of territory and innovation. In particular, we study
the case of Quito (Ecuador), with the idea of discovering the concepts and advances on
the management of the complexity of urban development and the need for communal
institutional development, focusing on municipal policies for land use, innovation and
intelligent cities. The conclusions of the study suggest that the experiences of Quito allow
discussing indicators for a newly formulated paradigm: a new culture of local politics.


KEYWORDS: Territory; Culture; Creative environment; Local Politics Quito.
