The growth of the creative industries has impacted most towns, cities and regions in the UK, bringing place-based economic, social and cultural benefits. Creative networks create value which enhances the development of the creative industries in places across the UK. While recognition and support from policy-makers is increasing, it remains peripheral to public funding in the creative industries. This report provides evidence that creative networks are of significant importance to industry, policy and academic stakeholders, making a case for their playing a more central role in public policy.
