A strategy for a Creative Poland The role of cultural policy Creativity is an essential competitive tool Creativity is a key component of innovation Creativity nourishes large sectors of the economy (textile, car, ICT)
The European cultural and creative sector - Strengths and weaknesses Plenty of individual talentbut with limited business skills and attracted to the USA (creativity drain) Some of the largest competitive players at global level but they lack same power and leverage than the US-based creative industries on governments A myriad of creative SMEs with strong local presence market access and undercapitalisation problems Importance of the public sectorbut a resistance in taking stock of international challenges Sustained consumer demand (growth in demand for content) but poor understanding of consumers’ demand in relation to the digital economy Strong IP laws in the EUbut poor enforcement in some countries (piracy levels) and subsidising broadband rollout.
A Creativity Policy Objectives Encourage imagination and talents at school, in life, in enterprises and public institutions. Support the development of a creative economy by integrating creativity in innovation policies. Promote social innovation and inclusion through culture. Brand Poland as the place to create in the world. Balance a policy vision entirely subject to economic ends.
A Creative Poland Recommendations Value culture as an important resource of creativity Mainstream culture-based creativity in local policies and programmes to foster innovation (economic and social) Re-direct existing financial resources to stimulate creativity (to support non technology innovation) Brand Poland as THE place to create. Question and tailor regulatory and institutional supports to creativity and cultural collaboration – redesign cultural policy
Conclusions : redefine cultural policy ? Show the importance of artistic talents and cultural activities in the process of innovation, in education, in research (break the silos). Ensure that innovation policy includes culture-based creativity. Develop a narrative on cultural policy that go beyond heritage preservation or tourism.
