The idea of creative industries was developed by a Creative Industries Taskforce of interdepartmental and industry representatives in the UK in 1998. The Department of Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) definition of creative industries is well-known: ‘activities which have their origin in individual creativity skill and talent and which have the potential for wealth and job creation through the generation and exploitation of intellectual property’. This definition has remained dominant as the ‘creative industries meme’ disseminated around the world, notably in the period between 2003 and 2009.
