Facing the Challenges of the Creative Economy

Creative Clusters is a network of experts in cultural development. Through events, consultancy and publication we work with policy-makers who are helping their nations, cities and regions to face some of the challenges of the creative economy.

We believe that the creative industries are central to recovery in advanced economies, and that culture is one of the keys to sustainable development everywhere.

You can explore these ideas in the Slideshow below, in Key Concepts and in our Events Archive. If you would like to go deeper, Creative Clusters’ Director Simon Evans may be able to help you in person.
