Summary: For the first time, this study brings a detailed economic focus to the arts in Northern Ireland and highlights not just the economic significance of the sector but also its potential for growth, especially in terms of the role that the arts can play as a key component of overall economic development policy. With joint funding by the Department of Education for Northern Ireland, the Council commissioned John Myerscough, a leading expert in this specialised field of research, to examine the economic significance of the arts in Northern Ireland and to consider areas for future development. What he has produced is a fascinating account of the multifaceted nature of the economic dimension of the arts. Our hope is that the study will be found to be of wide interest across a broad spectrum of Northern Ireland society, including government (both central and local), policy makers and practitioners, arts promoters, those who make their living from the arts, and, of course, the large number of people who attend and enjoy the artistic activities that take place. If this study can raise awareness and promote debate among these different interests on the economic and policy issues raised, then it will be of considerable benefit. John Myerscough's study stimulated lively debate within the Economic Council itself and this is reflected in the comments that are included as a Council Statement at the beginning of the report. The ultimate aim of the study and the Council's Statement is, of course, not just to promote debate but, more importantly, lo improve policy and provision in a way which will allow the arts to flourish and to make a steadily increasing contribution to the economy of Northern Ireland.
