Abstract Both in Australia and overseas, regional development is increasingly characterised by a 'self-help' approach, and from the perspective of a creative writer and an anthropologist, I am continually struck by how often these 'self-help' development approaches lead to the harnessing of local culture and identity - as well as creativity and inspiration - for practical regional development ends. Local communities are exhorted to be 'innovative', 'entrepreneurial', and 'creative' in coming up with solutions to their economic, social, and environmental problems.
