We are the voice for the UK’s Creative Industries, working with policy-makers and politicians at every level on the decisions that matter most to our members.
We champion the Creative Industries and advocate for the sector to be at the heart of economic and social policy. Our Creative Coalition Festival brings industry and creators together with senior politicians, giving policy-makers and decision-makers a critical platform for sharing their vision for the sector. We have had Secretaries of State open all Creative Coalition Festivals, and strong representation from HM Opposition including the Rt Hon. Keir Starmer MP. This year’s speakers include the Rt Hon. Michelle Donelan MP and Lucy Powell MP. We have been working closely with government and the Creative Industries Council to help shape the Creative Industries’ Sector Vision, which is due to be published in the coming months and will position the Creative Industries as a key industrial sector.
We work with our members to influence government through high-profile campaigns, industry insights and authoritative responses to consultations and announcements. Our member-led networks, roundtables and UK Council play a central role in shaping our priorities and amplifying the case for the UK’s Creative Industries.

It is because of our members’ continued support, partnership and creative ideas that we have been able to respond quickly and effectively on issues that matter to them the most: from the impacts of the pandemic and Brexit to Creative Industries tax reliefs, the Retained EU Law Bill, AI Text and Data Mining proposals and the Cultural Education Plan. Our CEO, Caroline Norbury OBE, gave evidence to the House of Lords Communications and Digital Committee on the future of the Creative Industries, contributing to the Committee’s report that identified a failure among senior Government figures to recognise the sector’s commercial potential.
