Creative Island is pleased to release the final documents derived from last years research program.
These two documents provide a quantitative analysis of existing cultural and creative industry data and a qualitative analysis of the sector.
Throughout most of 2017 TCI , worked with Justin O’Connor, Professor of Cultural Economy at Monash University, Dr Kim Lehman from The University of Tasmania and the Department of State Growth, to better describe the State’s cultural and creative sector – that sector defined as
“those activities involved in the making and dissemination of goods, services and practices whose primary value lies in their meaningfulness to us – as enjoyment, transformation, education, information, challenge, dissent, and the making and celebration of individual and collective identities”.
We stress that we don’t believe that this is the only way to define the sector, but rather it is an agreeable position to start from.
The reports are available for download here.
We would like to thank all who participated in the discussion groups and questionnaires , providing valuable insight into the Creative and Cultural Sector of the state. We would also like to acknowledge the Department of State Growth for supporting this research program.
