Creative Industry as a Lever for LSED
Creative industry, which has been developing in recent decades, includes within it all the direct and indirect economic activity that arises from artistic activities. Musicians, filmmakers, theatrical troupes, fashion designers, authors and poets, all these as well as others participate in the creative industry. For example, the process of producing a video clip involves the creators themselves, but also sound and lighting crews and set designers. They all require catering and lodging services that are provided by local establishments. Creative industries can also serve to promote tourism and even help in enhancing a sense of unique local identity. Creative industry can serve to promote local development if it is rooted in local creators, producers or business establishments.
