From cultural to creative industries : theory, industry, and policy implications
Cunningham, Stuart D. (2011) From cultural to creative industries : theory, industry, and policy implications. In Moeran, Brian & Alacovska, Ana (Eds.) Creative Industries Critical Readings. BERG, London, pp. 54-65.
Across post-industrial societies worldwide, the creative industries are increasingly seen as a key economic driver. These industries - including fields as diverse as advertising, art, computer games, crafts, design, fashion, film, museums, music, performing arts, publishing, radio, theatre and TV - are built upon individual creativity and innovation and have the potential to create wealth and employment through the mechanism of intellectual property.
Creative Industries: Critical Readings brings together the key writings - drawing on both journals and books - to present an authoritative and wide-ranging survey of this emerging field of study.
The set is presented with an introduction and the writings are divided into four volumes, organized thematically:
Volume 1: Concepts - focuses on the concept of creativity and the development of government and industry interest in creative industries;
Volume 2: Economy - maps the role and function of creative industries in the economy at large;
Volume 3: Organization - examines the ways in which creative institutions organize themselves; and
Volume 4: Work - addresses issues of creative work, labour and careers
This major reference work will be invaluable to scholars in economics, cultural studies, sociology, media studies and organization studies.
