This paper traces the evolution of the creative industries through three conceptual phases: creative clusters (‘industries’ with creative outputs); creative economy (services with creative inputs); and creative citizens (creative human capital). These correspond to an extension of the concept of creativity from industry to economy to culture, and from a provider-led or supply side perspective (industry) to a consumer-led demand focus (market). The paper argues that creative innovation is a property of social network markets (in which talented individuals are agents), and that digital media extend to whole populations the possibility of creative engagement with the growth of knowledge.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
