Our topic is important, complicated and timely. Collectively, America’s creative industries include not only the professional nonprofit art and cultural organizations and the commercial entertainment industries, but also a varied workforce composed of numerous occupations and professions. These industries are global players and have become the nation’s leading exporters. They are a leading edge of what has variously been called the “new economy”, the “information age” or “the creative economy.” They are also a primary purveyor of America’s image abroad and a source of mutual international understanding and misunderstanding. Yet the creative industries have little common identity and little public awareness of them as a collectivity. Without such an awareness, training, development, planning, and policymaking is not only difficult but also haphazard. (...) We propose that the following three lenses will bring our topic into clearer focus by helping to establish organic working definitions of key terms and relationships. Such an effort is not simply a matter of semantics, but rather determines the shape of subsequent conversation, and builds a common understanding upon which to premise analysis and to propose action. 1. The concept of a societal sector—the Creative Sector 2. The selection of three key cultural professions: artist, arts educator, and arts administrator 3. Key external forces are affecting the creative sector. (Font: Document)
