The creative workforce: How to launch young people into high-flying futures

Publication date: 
1 September 2008
Type: 
book

Whether we describe them as Gen Y, the Net Gen, the Millennials or the Yuk/Wows, today's young people have grown up in a highly technologised environment. They interact, engage and disengage with greater speed and choice than ever before. But are they equipped for a work future in which creativity has become the defining feature of economic life?

No longer the preserve of creative industries, 'creative capital' is needed everywhere, because novel thinking, navigation, interactivity, border-crossing and forging new relationships have all become crucial to success and productivity.

Social network markets: a new definition of the creative industries

Authors: 
and Paul Omerod

Type: 
journal article

We propose a new definition of the creative industries in terms of social network markets. The current definition of the creative industries is based on an industrial classification that proceeds in terms of the creative nature of inputs and the intellectual property nature of outputs. We propose, instead, a new market-based definition in terms of the extent to which both demand and supply operate in complex social networks. We review and critique the standard creative industries definitions and explain why we believe a market-based social network definition offers an analytic advance.

Creative industries and cultural science: A definitional odyssey

Publication date: 
15 January 2008
Type: 
article

In this paper Jason Potts argues that the definition of cultural science depends on the definition of creative industries. The problem, however, is that unlike the definition of evolutionary economics, complexity science and new cultural studies, which are also elements of cultural science, the creative industries suffer multiple non-commensurable definitions. These are reviewed and analytic implications for the definition of cultural science are examined.
