We can all agree that the creative industries have the power to break down barriers between people and to accompany us through our lives but the impact created by these industries does not stop there. They are also key to economic growth and according to OxLEP (Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership), Oxfordshire alone contributed with £1.4 billion to the UK economy prior to the pandemic. The Creative Industries Manifesto created by Creative England and Creative Industries Federation also highlights that the creative industries "add over £100bn to the UK’s economy, export £46bn in goods and services worldwide and are growing at twice the rate of the general economy" and that they also have the ability to "tackle regional inequalities, build communities across the UK, and enable individuals to lead lives that are happier, healthier, more sociable, and enriched through access to culture and creativity".
