Introduction to A Research Agenda for Creative Industries

Stuart Cunningham, Terry Flew

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookForeword/postscriptpeer-review


The year 2018 marked the twentieth anniversary of the UK’s development of the first Creative Industries Mapping Document from the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) – which is widely recognised as having given rise to a distinctive policy paradigm that several jurisdictions across the world have embraced. It has also given rise to numerous critiques that align it with neoliberalism and the depoliticisation of culture, and that have predicted – without accuracy or success – its demise as an organising framework for policy makers, industry identity and advocacy, and research.
