Labour Party Creative Industries Policy Review
Through partnership with a number of independent think thanks we will specifically looking at the following questions in more detail:
- How digital technology is changing business models and blurring the boundaries between production, distribution and consumption
- How to articulate the value of arts and culture
- Access to business and employment opportunities within the Creative Industries
- How to stimulate growth and support the cultural and creative economy
This is the first stage of the process, which will last until June 2011, after which Ivan Lewis will be contributing a preliminary report to the Labour Party’s wider Policy Review. The report will not aim to propose a full complement of specific detailed policies, rather a deeper understanding of the direction and focus for Labour’s policies towards the sector. This will include drawing out key questions which will need to be looked at in more detail during the next stage (anticipated to begin in September 2011). There will be plenty of opportunity for organisations and experts from across the Creative Industries to feed into this process, especially to respond on specific issues further down the line.
If you would like to submit information to shape Labour’s thinking at this stage, please email the document to firstname.lastname@example.org before the end of May. We will also keep you informed with the Policy Review process going forward. Given the high response rate expected to this consultation we will not be able to give individual feedback to each submission, however the policy review team are keen to hear from as wide a cross-section of voices as possible throughout the policy review process.
