The Cultural and Creative Industries: A Literature Review

By Justin O'Connor, Creativity, Culture and Education (CCE), Newcastle, 2010 (2nd Edition), ISBN 978-1-907264-05-4

This report created by Justin O'Connor, Professor of the Creative Industries Faculty, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia, gives a thorough overview of literature that deals with the relationship between culture and economics that lie at the heart of this terminology. This account takes a sixty-year trip, starting from the culture industry, leading through the cultural industries, and ending at the creative industries. It explores the history of the idea of the cultural industries, and how it has changed and developed the current interest in the creative economy. The work focuses on the conceptual ideas behind thinking in this area, and lays out the reasons behind the shifts in terminology and policy. The second edition of the report presents some additional reflections on the implications of the internet and the mobile communication technologies on the creative industries.
