The Creative Industries Sector Vision

Back to top

The Creative Industries Sector Vision sets out a shared ambition for the UK Government and industry to grow the Creative Industries by £50 billion and create 1 million extra jobs by 2030; and confirms the Government’s commitment to the Creative Industries as a high-growth priority sector.

Today the UK Government announced an additional £77 million of new investment in the Creative Industries, across a range of programmes that will support the achievement of the Sector Vision’s three goals:

Goal One
Grow creative clusters across the UK, adding £50 billion more in Gross Value Added (GVA).

Goal Two
Build a highly-skilled, productive and inclusive workforce for the future, supporting one million more jobs across the UK

Goal Three
Maximise the positive impact of the creative industries on individuals and communities, the environment and the UK’s global standing.

Creative UK were acknowledged for our investment in North of Tyne, our work on bullying and harassment, and our advocacy for freelancers. Caroline Norbury OBE, Creative UK’s Chief Executive & Creative Industries Council member responded:

“The UK Government’s Sector Vision recognises and cements the Creative Industries’ immense capacity for growth, and rightly prioritises much-needed investment in the sector. Creative UK, our members, and colleagues across the Creative Industries, stand ready to further unleash the power of creativity, so that together we can drive inclusive growth across all parts of the UK.”

We are committed to working collaboratively with the UK Government and the Creative Industries Council to make the Sector Vision a sector reality. The Creative Industries Council are gearing up for next steps. We will be commenting further in the coming days as we process the strategy.
