Identified within the Economic Development Framework (EDF) as a developing sector in the Northern Territory (NT), the creative industries sector has the potential to grow and contribute to innovative economies and communities.
Co-developed by the Chamber of Commerce NT, NT Government and the creative industries sector, the Creative Industries Strategy 2020 - 2024 is the Territory’s first co-led strategy to help grow the sector and its economic benefits, including local jobs.
The strategy was developed through an extensive 12 month consultation process overseen by a Creative Industries Strategy Steering Committee, enabling organisations and key stakeholders from all regions to provide feedback to inform key action items within the strategy.
The five-year framework supports the vision of an innovative sector that celebrates the Territory’s cultural distinctiveness, while enhancing liveability, attracting visitors and growing the economy.
The Creative Industries Strategy 2020-2024 provides recommendations across 12 key industry sub-sectors, identified for their collective economic contribution to the Territory economy:
- Visual Arts and Crafts
- Screen, Radio and Broadcasting
- Performing Arts
- Digital Design
- Literature and Print Media
- Libraries and Archives
- Music Composition and Publishing.
