Creative industries are becoming increasingly important to the economic and social wealth of most economies. They are also inherently linked to entrepreneurship and this book provides thoughtful and comprehensive insights into the role of creative industries in contemporary economies and to the interface between creative firms and entrepreneurship. The book draws upon cutting edge research to illustrate and explain the diversity and nature of creative industries and to provide informed discussion on key topics relevant to developing theory and understanding of this vital sector. This book is a must for anyone interested in understanding and learning more about the opportunities which creative industries have created for entrepreneurship and the benefits which an entrepreneurial mind-set can offer to the creative industries.- Eleanor Shaw, University of Strathclyde, UK 'The creative industries have long been a hotbed of entrepreneurial activity. For decades vaudeville, theater, movies, art, and music have exemplified the key aspects of entrepreneurship, and the participants in these industries search for novelty and create innovations. But despite the fact that some countries have industrial policies to focus on creative arts, this is a little studied area of entrepreneurship. Colette Henry and Anne de Bruin offer one of the first academic books that showcases research in the creative industries. This volume presents a solid theoretical foundation and offers fascinating chapters that consider a variety of topics such as regional strategies, education, creative expression and the evolution of industry.'

Since the DCMS Creative Industries Mapping Document highlighted the key role played by creative activities in the UK economy and society, the creative industries agenda has expanded across Europe and internationally. They have the support of local authorities, regional development agencies, research councils, arts and cultural agencies and other sector organisations. Within this framework, higher education institutions have also engaged in the creative agenda, but have struggled to define their role in this growing sphere of activities. Higher Education and the Creative Economy critically engages with the complex interconnections between higher education, geography, cultural policy and the creative economy. This book is organised into four sections which articulate the range of dynamics that can emerge between higher education and the creative economy: partnership and collaboration across Higher Education institutions and the creative and cultural industries; the development of creative human capital; connections between arts schools and local art scenes; and links with broader policy directions and work. While it has a strong UK component, it also includes international perspectives, specifically from Australia, Singapore, Europe and the USA. This authoritative collection challenges the boundaries of creative and cultural industry development by bringing together international experts from a range of subject areas, presenting researchers with a unique multidisciplinary approach to the topic. This edited collection will be of interest to researchers and policy makers working in the area of creative and cultural industries development.

This report warns that the extraordinary success of the UK's creative industries may be jeopardised by any dilution of intellectual property rights and the failure to tackle online piracy. The Committee also strongly condemns the failure of Google in particular to tackle access of copyright infringing websites through its search engine. Such illegal piracy, combined with proposals arising from the Hargreaves review to introduce copyright exceptions, and a failure to strengthen copyright enforcement as envisaged by the Digital Economy Act 2010, together threaten the livelihoods of the individuals and industries that contribute over £36 billion annually to the UK economy. Also, the Olympics No Marketing Rights scheme is excessively restrictive and is preventing British creative companies from realising the benefits they deserve from the Olympic legacy. The Committee calls for: a central champion of Intellectual Property in Government to promote and protect the interests of UK intellectual property; the maximum penalty for serious online IP theft to be increased to 10 years imprisonment, in line with the punishment for such offences in the physical world; more evidence and scrutiny before any exceptions to copyright such as those suggested by Hargreaves are applied; redoubled efforts to ensure that the video games tax credit is approved by the European Commission and introduced as soon as possible; reforms to the income tax and tax reliefs systems to recognise adequately the freelance nature of much creative work; greater recognition of the importance of arts subjects in the curriculum.

Written from an economic geography and historical-institutional perspective while leveraging the analytic strength of the established repertoire of other social science disciplines this book will provide a fascinating read for economic geographers and other social scientists researching the creative and knowledge economy as well as arts professionals aiming to better understand the process of making value of contemporary visual art.

In this book, the king introduces his latest modules on human behaviour engineering and its management in order to resolve the lingering crisis in education, technology, economy, politics, systems restructuring & management. Thought, imagination, inspiration and revelation become real things. You will find in Psychoeconomix the relationship between the matter age and the mind or creative age, new currency modules for globalization, policy making and analysis and somewhat new ways of reasoning. The human mind is brought to vivid clarity as test results are brought to bear on seemingly insignificant things so that there is now the modules for determining such things as the Creative Intelligence Quotient (CIQ) and the renaming of the Intelligence Quotient (IQ) based on discovered errors for better applications. Can the human scourge of unemployment be solved? Yes! Can there be created new technologies to determine the mind tax systems so that the mind is proved as distinct from the brain? Yes! You will find out that this template & manifesto is the karst for the paradigm shift to the creative economy that we have all yearned and longed for. And then the opportunities that the study of Creative Sciences Professionalism presents to the world is made real beyond mere farce. Discover yourself! Call it whatever you may, it is a study of the Creative & Psycho - Social Sciences. Thanks. Peter Matthews - Akukalia
