From Mumbrella: Go on then… What are the creative industries?

Excellent cross posting HERE from Mumbrella & The Conversation on the decline of the so called ‘creative industries’, and the idea that such things even exist.


All industries have the potential for creativity.

All people are creative.

Creativity can be enhanced by training. That’s a fact, Jack.


Until we stop labeling industries as ‘creative’, we won’t stop considering others ‘non creative’, and until we stop the twin tidal waves of risk aversion and conformity that are currently sweeping the world, we will continue to see incremental creativity, rather than the radical ideas that have truly changed the world.
