Cultural Policy & Creative Industries

Creative industries add both economic and cultural value to society by generating knowledge, information and artefacts through creative practice and production. Resources in this collection focus on work by and about the cultural sector, including galleries, libraries, archives, museums, publishers, screen and performing arts organisations and arts funding and advisory bodies as well as the broader creative economy and individual practitioners.

The compilation of this material was initiated by the Division of Education Arts and Social Sciences at the University of South Australia and is now part of a Linkage, Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities (LIEF) project: “Linked semantic platforms for social and physical infrastructure and wellbeing” (LE180100094), funded by the Australian Government, through the Australian Research Council.

Collection Adviser: Professor Susan Luckman, University of South Australia
