Do You Work Within The Creative Industries?

January 10th 2022

Do you work within the Creative Industries in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly or earn extra income through a creative passion alongside your day job?

Residents working in creative and cultural industries are being asked to take part a Creative Census to help build a picture of the sector locally.

Cornwall Council and Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership want to hear from anyone working within the creative sector – photographers, film makers, theatre technicians, crafters, games designers, architects and more!

Last year the Council launched Cornwall’s Creative Manifesto which followed work with the local cultural and creative sector and set in place a strategy for the creative economy between 2021 and 2025. The census forms part of this work and aims to gain a comprehensive picture of Cornwall’s creative industries landscape and to better understand our role as a leading rural creative economy. Responses will help identify potential opportunities, barriers to business growth and practical way to support the sector to flourish.

Stephen Rushworth, Cornwall Council cabinet portfolio holder for economy, said: “The creative industries are an important driver for economic growth and information from the survey will give us a valuable insight into the make-up of the sector in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

“Findings from the census will also mean we can take a strategic view on how we can advocate for our creative industry freelancers, businesses and organisations in the future.

“Cornwall is also bidding to become UK City of Culture 2025 and is one of the long-listed locations. Having high-quality data from this census is essential. It will help us underpin both why Cornwall needs the City of Culture award – and why we deserve it.”
