Collins, Patrick, Cunningham, James, Murtagh, Aisling, & Dagg, Jenny. (2013). The Creative Edge Policy Toolkit: From Growth to Sustainability: Supporting the Development of the Creative Economy in Europe’s Northern Periphery (pp. 123).
The concept of the creative economy first emerged in the mid-1980s in response to a crisis brought about by the decline in manufacturing in many of the world’s most developed economies. The idea suggests a productive convergence between culture, creativity and technology that has the potential to transform the productive relationships held between economy and society. Culture and creativity are high-value growth areas, and a vibrant relationship between culture and creativity enhances the competitiveness of countries, cities, regions and businesses, and is increasingly significant in personal and social development.
