“In the coming years, the creative industries will be important not only for our national prosperity but for Britain’s ability to put culture and creativity at the centre of our national life.”
Gordon Brown, Prime Minister
The Creative Britain Strategy was published in February 2008 by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport in partnership with Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR) and Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS). Creative Britain: new talents for the new economy sets out the Government’s strategy for the creative industries through 26 commitments.
Creative Britain aims to move the creative industries from the margins to the mainstream of the UK economy. Talent, innovation, business growth and intellectual property – key drivers of success in the creative industries, are all supported by the strategy. The strategy also focuses on local, regional and international elements to ensure that Creative Britain will help the UK’s creative industries grow domestically and globally.
The Government has committed over £70 million to support the strategy with departments across Government and agencies working together to successfully deliver the commitments.
Creative Britain will be periodically reviewed and updated to ensure that it continues to deliver the right support to encourage sustained economic growth in a fast changing sector.
