Assembly gets creative

Creative Industries are just that – creative. Think architecture, advertising, art, antiques, crafts, fashion and design, video, film, photography, music, performing arts, radio, TV, software development, and computer games/design. From scriptwriters and jewellery designers, to software developers and architects, it is estimated that the Creative Industries in Northern Ireland employ around 31,000 people. Maximising the potential of these industries and how they could be better supported is the subject of the Committee for Culture, Arts and Leisure’s first inquiry.

The Committee wants to understand what challenges the creative industries are facing; what funding, training and other support they need and what opportunities exist to grow the creative industries.

Any organisation or individual with an interest in the inquiry has had the opportunity to submit evidence to the Committee. Now it is up to the Committee compile a report which should be published in the autumn.
