This chapter explores how Plaine Commune, the local authority in charge of urban development in an area north of Paris, has implemented a ‘top-down’ art-based collaborative process, which may be regarded as Co-Creation. The chapter analyses whether and how a process initiated by a public authority can be understood as part of the Co-Creation method defined in this book. The chapter places the reflection in the frame of the Creative Cities debate (Florida, Landry) and looks at whether and how Co-Creation can be used as a tool for inclusive Creative Cities strategies. The case-study reveals that local authorities can innovate by calling in artists for their specific creative ability, involving them as mediators, to help develop new ways of making the city, together with urban planners and residents.
